Exterior side 787

EVERETT, Washington--After years of delays, Boeing on Monday expects to finally hand over the first 787 Dreamliner to its launch customer, All Nippon Airways (ANA). But before doing so, the giant airplane manufacturer hosted a media event Sunday and invited members of the press to take a peek at the interior of one of the much-anticipated jets.

This is the exterior of the second Dreamliner that ANA will receive. The press was unable to view the interior of the first one, as it was being prepared for Monday's big celebration.

Bar

On some Dreamliners, airliners will opt to install a bar, like this one. ANA has decided to put its bar in the middle of coach class on this plane, which is configured for domestic flights in Japan. The bar will hold several bottles, as well as snacks and other sundries. The airline expects the bar to be a central social spot during long flights.
