A travel expert reveals on camera there are special compartments for the crew to rest in during long-haul flights on commercial airlines.

There’s more to planes than just the cabin and the cockpit, there’s also a hideaway bedroom for the crew to rest in.

Concealed behind a door, a hidden staircase leads to the secret ‘crew rest’ on the American Air 787 Dreamliner. The room has six beds, coat hooks, a mirror, and plug sockets, all for the crew to use during off-duty periods.

Analyst for travel website The Points Guy, Zach Griff, posted behind-the-scenes footage showing the crew rest, so passengers can get a glimpse of what lies above their heads when they are onboard an aircraft like the 787.

There are three types of crew rest facilities on aircraft. The crew rest in the 787 Dreamliner is Class One, as the space is physically separate from the cabin and contains flat areas for sleeping. While a Class Two rest facility is only separated from the cabin by a curtain and includes chairs that can recline to a flat position. Class Three rest facilities only require a partially reclining cabin seat with foot support.

Next time you’re on a long international flight and are wondering where some of the crew have got to, they might be dozing in a sleeping compartment above you. If you are flying long-haul, this shows you how to get into the first-class lounge without a first-class ticket.
