Iberia launches upgrade plan

Starting this month Iberia plans to start totally remodelling its long haul Business and Tourist Class seating arrangements, which includes bringing in new Airbus A330s.  The initiatives are part of a “Transformation Plan” announced in November involving substantial improvements to all services, new aircraft, and redesigned cabin interiors on long haul routes.
During January the airline will take delivery of the first of eight Airbus A330s equipped with the improved cabins for services between Europe and the Americas, while the interior of its existing long haul fleet of Airbus A340-600s are also being upgraded.

The new Business Class seating section includes improvements over the current offering, including longer flat seats, a greater degree of privacy, more storage space, and a larger entertainment offer.  Also provided is a gourmet meal service designed by four leading Spanish chefs, each of them holding at least two Michelin stars, and a wine list that includes a wide choice of Spain’s most exquisite regional wines.
The new Tourist Class on the long haul A340-600 flights features more comfortable seats, and individual display screens, with an extensive offer of entertainment options, as well as connections for passengers’ electronic devices. www.iberia.com
