In October, Qantas took delivery of its first Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner. As part of the delivery ceremony, members of the media were allowed to tour the brand new jet.

Here's a look at the Dreamliner's state-of-the-art glass cockpit. Turn around ...

And you'll see the hidden doorway to the pilot's rest compartment. Since the Qantas Dreamliner does not have a first-class cabin, the crew rest is located above the business-class seats at the front of the plane.

Climb up the stars and you'll find ...

Sleeping quarters for two pilots. Even though the Dreamliner requires only two pilots, airlines usually fly with four on its long-haul international routes, the main crew, and a relief crew.

Hidden at the rear of the Dreamliner's cabin is the flight attendants' crew rest. It's located above the main cabin between the economy-class section and the aft galley.

Like the pilots' compartment, you'll need to climb up a narrow corridor.

Once inside, you'll find a cozy little compartment with room for six.

Here's a look down at the stairs from the inside the compartment.

At the back of the compartment are three forward-facing beds.

There's also one bed on ...

Each side of the compartment.

At the front of the compartment is another bed.

Since the Dreamliner is a smaller wide-body jet, its crew rests are not as spacious as larger aircraft such as the Boeing 777 or the Airbus A380.
