Secret Rooms in Aircrafts You Never Knew Existed


In an airplane, even in the largest one, could a secret room be hidden? Yet it exists, a crew rest area.

The Bright Side’s team will gladly give you a tour. It shows how it looks from the inside.

The flight attendants are also the human beings such as the rest of us. They need sleep during long flights. On concord, where do they sleep?

In some airplanes just like the American Airlines Boeing 773. One can access this room using not a staircase. But a secret trap door that looks like a common luggage rack door over the passenger seats.

The “secret room” is designed for 6 to 10 closely spaced beds. There are no portholes.

Usually, the crew rest areas are provided with hooks for clothes, reading lamps, mirrors, and storage spaces for personal belongings. There is also a set of bed linen and sometimes even a set of pajamas.

Onboard the American Airlines Boeing 773 the beds are situated along the aisle. Similar to a cruise ship. The aisle is so narrow that one can only walk sideways.

In the Boeing 747, the beds are located one above the other. They are equipped with curtains that block out noise.

The Boeing 777 also has an additional room with two sleeping places for pilots. Two business class seats, and depending on the air company, a toilet or a closet with a sink.

Flight attendants are friendly, patient, and polite, despite passengers whims. It’s so great that there’s a place where they can have a rest while we’re watching Doctor Strange at an altitude of 10,000 meters over the Atlantic.

Now we got to know about their secret. It’s time to ask them for a tour. We are sure they won’t refuse.
