Lie-Flat Business Class: €352/£281 Iberia Roundtrips Between London and Madrid

neue Iberia Business Class A350 Sitz Fenster 2

Oneworld members British Airways and Iberia set some really attractive price tags on flights to many European destinations to/from London. Possibly the most interesting out of them is Madrid, which sees frequent widebody service, mostly from Iberia. You can fly on this route from £281 departing from London or €352 (~£301) from Madrid.

Sadly, oneway tickets are almost as expensive as roundtrips, making it more appealing to enjoy proper long-haul business class twice.

Our availability calendar highlights all possible roundtrip flight dates at the lowest price for trips up to 14 days. It will forward you to Iberia or British Airways with your preselected flight dates. While it shows you all flights for the lowest fare, it does not show you on which dates lie-flat-seats are available.

You can read instructions on finding them in the Search & Book section.

BA LHR MAD C 281

This is the schedule for Iberia’s widebody flights:

Madrid – London

IB 3162: 07:40 / 08:00 – 09:15 / 09:30, Usually A330¹
IB 3166: 15:45 / 15:50 – 17:15, A330 / A350

London – Madrid

IB 3175: 10:45 / 10:50 – 14:10 / 14:15, Usually A330¹
IB 3167: 18:45 – 22:10, A330 / A350

¹IB 3162 and IB 3175 are operated by Airbus A320 family planes on Sundays.

While most aircraft deployed will feature Iberia’s old business class, there are some Airbus A350s equipped with Iberia’s new suites scheduled for these flights.

Iberia is one of the few airlines that has the same product across its entire long-haul fleet. A positive is that every seat has direct access to the aisle. The seats which are directly next to the window (in every 2nd row) offer especially high privacy. In total, it’s a very good product, as Travel-Dealz founder Johannes could witness on his short test flight on an A340.
