Pilots who need to sleep during their shifts have two options: in-seat rest in the cockpit, or bunk rest in a bed or the passenger cabin.They spend up to half of a lengthy flight sleeping at what they describe to as "a hidden" place, where they typically spend the night.There are typically two of them: one for the pilots, which is usually positioned above the cockpit and frequently has two bunks as well as a recliner seat, and one for the cabin crew, which is typically positioned above the aft galley, the area at the back of the plane where food and beverages are prepared and stored, and typically has six bunks or more. Normally, both of them are situated above the aircraft's back.
