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

There’s A Secret Compartment For Their Naps

Don’t worry, flight attendants get to take their breaks too. Big planes like Boeing 777 or 787 jets have secret sleeping cabins built in for staff. These windowless sleeping quarters are built above or below the galley, so that’s probably where your favorite flight attendant is if you’ve noticed you haven’t seen them for a while.
