Also the new FAR 117 rest rules are much worse and polls taken in our airline find them worse on a 4 to 1 ratio and fly tired.

The 777 on Etihad is a coffin. Right behind the cockpit, very cramped. No room to sit or anything

I personally like the 747 crew rest the best for FAs. It's up in the tail, not literally of course, but upstairs at Door 5Right for my airline. The swaying of the tail can rock me to sleep. You dont hear much commotion from the passenger cabin.

Unless you hit turbulence and then you get thrown around the bunk like a yo-yo (seatbelt or not). Found it to be very noisy up there too (louder than the cabin) of air/engine noise
|Quoting B2468 (Reply 8):|
How much of that noise is due to the ventilation system? As I said before, as a pax, the ventilation system annoys me...on one of my last flights on an SQ 772-ER, about 10 minutes after takeoff, the ventilation system turned off for about 15 seconds, and the cabin was filled with the most soothing hum...very nice and relaxing, but the system came back on, and it was time for earplugs. I've experienced the same on trains...most of the perceived noise comes from the ventilation system.
Some of those crew rests look very quiet in pictures but what is the reality? I suppose I am trying to find if there is any noise sanctuary for humans on airliners!
