The A340 has mobile-crew-rest area comprised of a container that can be
loaded or not.  The unit has six bunks, lighting, and is accessed by steps
built into the container.  A door from main cabin left aisle is access,
and there is an escape hatch on the floor of the opposite aisle.
Not used by Lufthansa on "short-range" transatlantics, it is instead used
on their longer routes...the recently halted SJU service, Rio, SFO, LAX,
possibly MIA.  Don't know about A330, as my info comes from LH employee.
Container is positioned either in middle of wing or just aft of trailing
edge of wing.
