The airline has continued to the rollout of the enhanced Business Class seating product on A350 aircraft which in addition to all aisle access for customers, now includes an improved privacy provision with the suite doors.

Iberia has supplemented these seating upgrades with a very good bedding and mattress product for long-haul flights.

Premium Economy and Economy Class cabins has seen enhancements through improved IFE, WiFi, and amenity products, and Premium Economy passengers will find elaborated elements of the inflight catering products, including tableware and meal choices.

Iberia maintains its partnership with leading airline catering supplier DO&CO across all frontline areas including all elements of the onboard meals, as well as lounge dining experience which achieves a very high standard.

The catering from Madrid embraces the best of Spanish cuisine and seasonality, and the lounge menu rotates during the day to ensure the best standards of freshness and presentation.

Commenting on the 4-Star Airline Rating awarded to Iberia, Edward Plaisted, Skytrax CEO said: “The recertification of the 4-Star Rating for Iberia reflects the excellent product enhancements across the customer journey and increased sophistication and appeal in the dining experience. The airline has worked extremely hard and committed a great deal of investment over the last 2 years to greatly improve the guest experience.”
