A Flight Attendant Released Photos Of This SECRET Room On Airplanes.
The thing about air travel is, well, it kind of blows. No matter which airline you're flying, odds are your seat will be too small (and too expensive) to ever make you feel like you've gotten a good deal. And then there's the matter of the other passengers -- even if you're in good spirits, there's no telling if the person next to you will be. All in all, we can agree that flying makes people feel bad more than it makes them feel good.
And if that's true for you, the passenger, we can only imagine what it's like for the crew. Getting drinks, meeting demands, and otherwise keeping the plane safe can be an exhausting job. So just where does the crew go when it's time to take a rest?
As it turns out, there's a whole secret realm on some planes, dedicated to giving the crews the rest they deserve. On longer flights, there actually is some respite for the crew to sit back and relax -- and funnily enough, it might even be better than your seat. It's cool though: These people work incredibly hard, and deserve all the relaxation they can get.
When you're flying, you're probably not thinking about much else besides the views.
Especially if you've got a window seat: Who can argue with a view like this?
And otherwise, you're not thinking about the crew.
Admittedly, although we appreciate the work they do, we're not super aware of where the crew is on their break. After all, we have our own comfort to worry about -- and on a plane, it's pretty much impossible to get comfy, isn't it?
Have you ever noticed a sign like this on the plane?
Maybe you've overlooked it before, but on larger planes that take longer flights, there's always an area like this for the crew to take a rest. And just like other places on the plane, there are plenty of regulations.

But where is this "crew rest area" the sign speaks of?
Where could they possibly fit a space for the crew to rest on a plane that's already packed to the gills?
Like many others, the Boeing 777, for example, puts the crew compartment above the passenger area, just behind the cockpit.
Turns out, they're hidden somewhere on the plane. These spaces are small, windowless compartments with just enough room to stretch out after hours of pushing drink and food carts up and down the aisles. Think of it as a sanctuary for your hard-working flight attendants.
