If you’ve ever been on a long-haul flight, have you ever wondered where the cabin crew might go when they’re on a break?

Other than a couple milling around during the night flights, they seem to just disappear. And when they materialise, they look super fresh.

What is this sorcery?

It seems that the inner cabin space of Boeing 777 and 787 aircrafts is as shapeshifty as Hogwarts.

When you board one of these planes, if you’re anything like me you’re directly to the right… to economy. But you know how you have to (mercilessly) pass through business class to get there? If you want to distract yourself from the luxury you’re not getting, look up. That’s usually where the secret room is.


To get to the secret room, you need the secret staircase. Oh, and the security code.

On the Boeing 773, the beds are along the aisle and curtained off, similar to that you might find on a ship. And you can only walk down the aisle sideways because it’s so narrow.  What you won’t find are windows. 


And all this time I thought cabin crew just hung out in the galley kitchen, like a Friends-style Central Perk in the sky.

Now I’ll be looking wryly at anything that even slightly looks like a secret door.
