Virgin Australia B77W Crew Rest Area Escape Hatch

Tue Feb 25, 2020 12:59 am

https://www.news.com.au/travel/travel-a ... ff66dc91a4

Is this a standard configuration for the crew rest area on a B77W? Whereabouts is the egress point in the cabin? The article states it is towards the rear, but when he pops the hatch at around 0:22, it looks like it is above the middle row of seats. If an evac is required, won't they hit the pax sitting underneath?

Yes standard option on the 77W, he makes it pretty clear on the video from the outside it’s an overhead bin without a handle, when it opens it is inline with the overhead bins with the crew exiting into the isle. Similar appears at the front of the cabin for the other crew rest.

Yeah, that's a Boeing furnished crew rest. It folds out just like a regular overhead bin.

The third party crew rest on our 747, that's an injury hazard. The exit is in the aisle and it sends a hatch flying down right in between the lavatories (and anyone waiting to use them).
