Crown Areas

Thu Dec 14, 2006 2:34 am

It's been my understanding that the crown areas of the 747 and 777 are capable of accomodating all manner of in-flight amenities; lounges and so on, if the airlines are willing. Were an airline so minded to do so, is the area fully stand-up? Is it somewhat similar to the upper deck of the 747? Simply judging on interior configurations, it would seem that the DC-10/MD-11, TriStar, and A350XWB would also be able to handle those kinds of facilities. Is that the case? Any information on the aircraft mentioned or any others is greatly appreciated.

I believe a number of airlines have had some sort of crown area on the 747, and of course Boeing demos the 777 with it, but I can't think of any off the top of my head. Some pictures from a 777, A340, and 747:

This is a Boeing link that discusses the overhead crew rest area.
Aircraft maintenance can be done fast, cheap or right. Pick two.
