Do beds on airplanes have seat belts?

Asked by elbanditoroso (22515points) 3 weeks ago

Boeing business jets, Air Force One, Airbus and a bunch of outfitters turn a standard jet airplane into a very fancy apartment in the air, including showers, full bedrooms, and (of course) full size beds.

Do the beds have an equivalent of seat belts, to hold you down onto the mattress in the event of turbulence?

Yes, they do. There is too much risk of severe unforeseen turbulence.

So do private jets like a 707s, I used to ride from Connecticut to Florida for company business in their jet. Sometimes the last seat available was the Barber chair (used by company president, he had his barber fly with him for overseas trips) It had a seat belt.
