Everyone agrees that flight attendants – especially on long-haul flights – need a break every now and then. Have you ever wondered where cabin crew go when they want to rest?

There are special bedrooms for that, like former hostess Svenja Hoffmann from right to left Reveal now. She writes that the crew retreats there for rest periods. This happens in the hours after a meal is served and passengers are busy sleeping or watching movies.

There have already been one or two hosts on Facebook who have taken a look behind the scenes. For example with Virgin Australia.

Bedrooms are located above or below passengers
