I'm a flight attendant – there are secret hidden spots on planes that even crew members think are storage spaces | The Sun

A FLIGHT attendant has revealed secret hidden spots on planes that even crew members think are storage spaces.

The big, secret spaces are actually for something much different.

Large, widebody planes that are used for long-haul flights tend to be accommodating to more passengers and crew members.

But the longer flights also mean that crew members and flight attendants are more likely to require rest.

These planes are usually equipped with crew rest compartments.

There are separate quarters for pilots and other crew members.

Hidden from view from passengers and crew members alike, these compartments are often located above the main cabin.

This is true on newer planes, including the Boeing 787 or Airbus A350.

But the location can vary depending on the type of aircraft.

Sometimes, the compartments are found in the main cabin or in the cargo hold.

On older planes, the compartments may even be reclining seats with big heavy curtains enclosing them in the back of the plane.

Pilots quarters are usually found above the cockpit and can sometimes even include in-flight entertainment options, which the general crew cabins do not have.

The Federal Aviation Administration determines the parameters of the compartments, but airlines may have input in the configuration of the spaces when they purchase a plane, CNN reports.

The FAA requires the compartments to be located where intrusive noise, odors, and vibration will have a minimal effect on the ability to sleep.

The compartments should also be temperature-controlled and have adjustable lighting.

Passengers are unable to access these crew-only rest areas.

But if you're curious about where they may be located on your next flight, look for a door at the front or back of the plane that isn't being used.
