I haven’t flown Iberia longhaul before, but will be doing so in the New Year. Their new business plus seat looks terrific:24 Dec 2013
Agreed SM, it does look terrific – good on Iberia’s management for bringing their Airline into the 21st century with a fresh new and innovative business class seat…
I am sure others will follow / catch up…24 Dec 2013
Just scroll down to T4 Showers Service on arrival.
I take it you will be arriving on a longhaul.
I love Cava!

SM I have only used business class departure facilities at MAD so have no first hand experience of the arrivals facilities at Barajas. Food and drinks were perfectly adequate and quite enjoyable pre-flight. I flew on the old J class seat to San Jose on an A340 which I was able to sleep on but the new one looks like a great improvement. Crew very good but entertainment and amount of food available rather disappointing.24 Jan 2014
Where are you flying to/from SM out of interest?
Would it be too much to ask to get a Seat Plans review on your experience. . .? It would be good to hear about it.
Looks a good product, similar to the Alitalia one, but as you have observed IB crews can vary in their enthusiasm for the job…
Actually even the old IB longhaul product looked pleasant and attractive.24 Jan 2014
I flew MAD-LHR on the newly equiped A330 just before christmas, so whilst it was operating a C rather than J class service, I at least got to try out the new seat.
Overall, pretty comfortable, but nothing special. Table a bit flimsy, IFE average, seating position comfy enough, did not try in the sleeping position, and no idea what they offer in terms of pillow, blankets etc.
On my flight, the crew were everything you hope they will not be…….24 Jan 2014
I’ve flown Iberia Business Plus (long haul) and Business Club (mid-haul) several times.
It’s a thoroughly Spanish affair which I quite enjoy, generally friendly cabin crew (their English often limited), Spanish food, cava, limited IFE compared to BA / Virgin, but you’re guaranteed a flat bed in Business Plus (used to be angled but they took out a several rows a few years back to provide extra space to make the old seats flat) which for me puts them at an advantage compared to the competition. Haven’t tried the new seat up looks like a further improvement.
There are showers in the VIP lounges at T4 (IB European) and T4C (IB long haul and BA). Both lounges nice enough place to spend a bit of time between flights, nice views, airy, good enough food and beverage offering.24 Jan 2014
