AeroMexico just took delivery of its first 787-9 Dreamliner and it has one especially cool feature: a walk-up bar in its business-class cabin.

The bar is stocked with spirits and snacks that guests can access in addition to regular food and beverage service. This isn’t the only plane to offer such a feature — Emirates even has a staffed bar on the upper deck of its A380, for instance — but it’s still a nice touch.

There's also a walk-up bar.

The plane, called Quetzalcoatl (according to the Maya, he was one of two creators of life and a boundary-maker between earth and sky), is one of 10 planes ordered back in July 2012. When AeroMexico completed its purchase, this was the largest investment in the history of Mexican aviation. Quetzalcoatl nows joins nine other Dreamliners (787-8s) already part of AeroMexico’s fleet.

AeroMexico's new Dreamliner has a 1-2-1 configuration.

The plane holds 274 seats, with 36 lie-flat business seats in a 1-2-1 configuration. The seats also have 18-inch touchscreens, two inches larger than on the 787-8.

All of business class now has true lie-flats.

You can catch the 787-9 on AeroMexico flights serving Amsterdam, London, Madrid, New York, Paris, Santiago, Shanghai and Tokyo routes in the next few weeks. Since all of SkyTeam is now on ExpertFlyer, log on to find availability.
