Inspecting the crew rest bunks
As a group of mostly very frequent flyers, getting to go behind the scenes and see the other side of the operations is always interesting. After all, we’ spend plenty of time on the customer side. Hitting up the crew side is the next step in the adventure. So when Lufthansa opened up access to their Technik facility – their maintenance operations – scores of our group showed up to take part.
Among other things, the group wandered through a couple planes that were in for their regular maintenance checks. These planes are essentially fully disassembled and then put back together, with various bits replaced and refreshed along the way. One of the more popular scenes during these tours were the visits to the crew rest bunks. They may not be glamorous, but they are fully flat, quiet and dark. Not too shabby. I could travel like that. Then again, I’ve been in an overhead bin and didn’t think it was all that bad.
Anyways, here are pictures of some folks having fun in the crew rest bunks:
