Flight Review: Iberia A330-300 Business Class (IB 6165 MAD-BOS)


Last week I flew from Madrid to Boston on one of Iberia’s A330-300 in Business Class. While Iberia is not my first airline choice (I’m more of a Star Alliance person), this flight was convenient schedule-wise so I decided to give it a try.

I hadn’t been on Iberia Business Class long-haul in at least 3 years. The last reference I had was Kevin’s review of his flight LAX-MAD this past summer (check it here) so I wasn’t holding high hopes.
