Maximizing Boeing 777 Revenue Potential: Overhead Space Utilization Introduces New Opportunities For Airlines

Flight-Crew-Rest Compartment

The flight-crew-rest compartment is accessed through stairs located at door 1, over what is typically the airplane's first-class section. The flight-crew-rest compartment includes two business-class seats, two roomy bunks and optional amenities, including a closet or sink.

The six-or-seven- bunk attendant rest station, available on the 777-200ER, 777-200LR and 777-300ER, can be accessed from stairs located at the mid-section of the airplane.

In addition to the bunks, the rest stations also are outfitted with some personal stowage for the attendants. The 777-300ER has options for a six-, eight- or 10-bunk arrangement, with the entrance located at the rear of the airplane. The 777-200LR has options for a six- or eight-bunk arrangement.

The attendant rest design is modular so airlines choose bunk modules in multiples of two, starting with six bunks, to a maximum of 10. The attendant rest station is located above the economy class cabin. In addition to the bunks and personal storage, airlines can add optional stowage to the module.

The 777 attendant and flight-crew-rest areas offer unprecedented comfort and privacy to the crews, since the bunks are not one on top of each other. 

 

Overhead Features

Airline customers can select any of the overhead features on their new 777-200ERs, 777-300ERs and 777-200LRs.

The overhead area, or crown, will have open space virtually throughout the entire length of the airplane. The flight crew and attendant rest areas use a portion of that space, allowing for future overhead space utilization or other innovations.

Because their route structure does not require these accommodations, Boeing does not plan to offer overhead space utilization options for the 777-200 or the 777-300 airplanes.
