I was always led to believe that the quarters to the front was for pilots and there was another one to the rear for cabin crew.

That's correct.

 

Gregg's first pic shows the rear cabin crew rest area, which (dependent on operator configuration, has bunks for up to 12). His second picture shows a cross view of the pilot rest area at the front, which consists of two comfort chairs with IFE, a wash basin, and two bunks.

Very interesting, thanks Gregg!

 

But do 12 crew members rest at the same time? Isn't 12 a bit overkill?

Cool.  How crazy would it be to see a flight attendant climb up and into an overhead luggage rack and disappear...  :dance:

Let's be honest here. Your first thought was "gee, if I was sitting nearby I could get a nice look up her skirt", wasn't it?

 

:lol:

We never see this simulated.  :)

Sorry, I've no idea why I didn't notice that the 2 pics were from 2 different parts of the plane.

Are the girls included with a First Class ticket? Just give me time to get my credit card out.

That looks claustrophobic as hell without any windows.

Looks more comfy than the bunks on submarines.

Do they "hot bunk" on those aircraft beds?

Don't think we don't all know what you're thinking ;)

Claustrophobic, it can be....Also, as you can see on the photo with the two ladies, you can't really sit comfortably in the bunk, and to walk up and down the central aisle, you kind of need to duck. When you sleep, it is fine, otherwise, I would rather sit in a premium seat in the cabin.

 

Pilots are not always at the front....

Nope.  Many years ago I toured an old diesel sub, very claustrophobic, even though I do not suffer from claustrophobia.  Also whacked my head a couple of times going through the hatchways.  :vava:

LOL - I'm 6'5" and I have the scars to prove it...

Yep - cramped quarters - and the diesel boat guys had it even worse...
