Condor, Lufthansa's charter affiliate, operates some DC-10s which use the
cargo hold as the aircraft's galley. Because charter have stricter limits on
passenger luggage allowances, they can use galley space on the main deck for
extra seats.

The under-floor galley can be accessed by two elevators: one for the crew
and the other for a trolley. It's pretty interesting to be in there.  It's
quite spacious and gives the crew a little "peace" at times.
