Iberia Airline business class service is excellent. We try to book Premium Economy class seats whenever we are more than 8 hours in the air. After spending several days searching various airlines, J.J. came across Iberia offering direct flight from Los Angeles to Madrid. Finding that Business Class for this particular flight was being offered just $120 more than Premium Economy, he booked it immediately. There is no similar fare so we will be taking American Airlines Premium Economy on our return.
The seats recline to horizontal position. Full size pillow, warm comforter allowed us to get several hours of sleep. As you can see from the photos, meals were wonderful. Amenity bag included the usual toothbrush and paste, hand lotion, lip lotion, comb/brush, quality eye shade and ear plugs. Also appreciated is a small bottle of mist spray to keep your skin hydrated during the flight.
Smooth entry to Madrid. The airport is huge and beautiful! Took a local train to Stacion Atocha changing once in Chamartin. We are staying at Hotel Agumar for a week before heading to Lisboa. This is the hotel where we stayed 2 years ago. It’s nice to return to a familiar place. J.J. and I exited from the station and walked to our hotel. This will be our home for the next 7 days.
