I paid at the ticket desk to upgrade from a V fare to an I fare outbound (already booked inbound in I) at a cost of around 1000 USD on a sector. No availability on the short haul flight to MAD and then the ground staff did not alter my boarding pass. The cabin crew would not seat me in business. Only seven applications to the refund service later, and I still have nothing.... not even the miles to show for it!
I am a regular user of IB for UK to South America and I am oneworld Emerald. I have never been upgraded from Y.
Heramato, thanks for your quick reply. Can you tell me how the economy cabin & seats are on Iberia's A340-600? I'm flying a pretty long itinerary, SFO-JFK-MAD-PNA.
IB 346 doesn't look tired yet as it's the latest plane on IB's fleet. Seats are 31 inch in Y with adjustable headwings. No personal screens.
Here you have a TR where you can see some pics (MAD-JFK leg)
