While these flights are not reguarly available, you can still enjoy British Airways’ Boeing 777 business class or Iberia’s Airbus A340 on this route. Both airlines operate at least one afternoon rotation with widebody planes and therefore with long haul premium cabins.


Taxes and surcharges vary, depending on the country you are booking from and from which airport your journey originates. Adding another leg like DUS-LHR or LIS-MAD usually lowers taxes & surcharges for the Madrid to Heathrow trip.
