If you ever thought that the cabin crew had to cramp in to chairs like the rest of us when they're resting on a long-haul flight, you were very wrong. Most Boeing 777 and 787 airliners have a secret stairway that leads to a set of windowless bedrooms for the cabin crew, and not many people even know this space exists.

Usually the crew rest areas are hidden behind the cockpit above first class. After going up the secret stairs , you're greeted by 10 to 12 bunks, as well as personal storage space. It's no Hilton, but it's certainly better than economy class. Take the tour below.

On the Boeing 777, pilots have their own overhead sleeping compartments, which feature two roomy sleeping berths, as well as two business-class seats, and enough room for a closet, sink, or lavatory, depending on the airline.

The beds, which are generally around six feet long and two and a half feet wide, are partitioned by heavy curtains meant to muffle noise.

Other planes, like this American Airlines Boeing 773, have partitioned-off beds along an aisle, reminiscent of a cruise ship. The aisle is so low that you have to duck to walk through it.
