I recently fly from Lisbon to Madrid with Iberia on an A320. Now the airline was fine, the flight was just an hour or so but what a horrible sardine can of a plane. No IFE, all plastic and no room to move at all. If anyone even tried to recline it would be a big drama. This plane is obviously designed for the LCC market but I hope I never encounter one again.

It's not the plane, it's the airline that owns it and organised the seating. Iberia is not one of the best airlines to say the least.

So you wouldn't fly up front on one of AA's new 320 then?

Am considering Iberia for some US-Spain trips, but ¨up the front¨. I had Heard their old business product was pretty coughpy, but it appears they have new fully-flat business in their A340´s now - has anyone tried this?

Not sure what the current situation is but a year or so back, people on the same ship in the Galapagos had flown Iberia on the way to Quito from the UK - absolutely awful apparently.

I have found it pretty easy to compromise when a flight is 1hour or so-maybe that comes from flying PQQ-SYD with both Qantas & Virgin

Flew Iberia from GRU-MAD earlier in the year in whY.

Was absolutely woeful. Fortunately I had exit row, but it was freezing and the 'blanket' provided was just about threadbare. IFE was projected on the wall but only played one film for the duration of the flight.

J looked a little better but I would never fly Y again.

Flew MIA - MAD in J with IB on their A340 towards the end of last year juddles. It was the best flight of our RTW trip. Plane was new and staff and meals were excellent. Opted to fly with IB again (ahead of AA and BA) from MAD - JFK next year.
