Hi im new to this forum. I'm hoping to join aviation college in Sri Lanka. 
Before joining im searching about the life of an cabin crew member.

How do they manage while long flights? Sleep food?
I found some article says there is a hidden room for cabin crew members to sleep.
http://www.wonderdis...tendants-sleep/

Is that true?

If cabin crew can sleep? Who will work?

how often do they get leaves?

Can anyone briefly explain this

Hello, Roshini, this is not a new issue for airlines nor for military aircraft on long flights.

I wonder if anyone here knows what plane was the first to offer sleeping accommodations for the crew?

The full article of Your own link: http://www.businessi...?r=US&IR=T&IR=T
On nightflights when most of the passengers are supposed to sleep, are the need for service low and the service-crew can likely get a sleep. How and when is an internally agreement of the crew!

     I always figured the seats of the pilot, co-pilot, radio operator, and navigator all reclined into a sleeping mode.

The pilot would then put the airplane on autopilot. The radio operator would turn the microphones up in the

passenger compartments and they would all take a nap until passenger screaming would wake them up.

     The radio operator would then come over the PA system and tell everyone that they are sorry for turbulence

but we should be through it soon, as he is waking up the co-pilot because the pilot left specific orders not to

be bothered. :)

 

Yep, that's the way I understand it. B)  :rolleyes:

     See, I told you so. The only problem I have with that article is that the press is pointing the finger

at the pilot and co-pilot. It was not their fault. If the radio operator would have turned the passenger

compartment microphones up they would probably been awakened by the loud swearing going on

and been just fine. Its very hard to get good help these days. :)
