Flight Attendants Reveal Secrets Of Flying And What It’s Really Like Working For An Airline

There’s A Secret Compartment For Their Naps

On long-haul flights, you may take several naps, but what about the crew? They have to be present at all times to meet the needs of the passengers and they are always on their feet, but that’s a lot for a flight lasting more than ten hours.

Don’t worry, the flight attendants also take their breaks. Big planes like Boeing 777s and 787s have secret cabins for staff. These windowless dorms are built above or below the galley, so this is probably where your favourite stewardess is if you’ve noticed that you haven’t seen them in a while. Crew members really do need to sleep, as taking care of several people at once, even if you are used to it, is a gruelling task.
