I have no idea how one reaches this area. ===== I have seen this crew rest area on a Lufthansa A340. It is basically built into a cargo pallet, and is accessed by a stair, located just aft of the wing (if my memory isn't failing me). The stairwell has a door on it similar to one on lavatories, but without "occupied" signs. :-) The stair itself is steep, more like a ladder that you find on boats and ships (cargo/military ships, that is). The flight crew also has access to a couple of bunks just aft of the flight deck, inside the cockpit. These are on the main deck, though.
