So I managed to book return SYD-HBA on QF in J for two people. Of course Iberia website showed no business availability, BA website showed business on the direct flights I ended up booking via a 45 minute call to Iberia customer service in Spain. The guy was helpful but I was put on hold for so long on multiple occasions so not sure why the system/process was so slow. Interestingly, Iberia agent said he couldn't book me on the indirect flights via Melbourne which the BA website was showing J award availability (I had wanted these flights as they were my preferred dates where the direct flights weren't available).

So in summary I think Iberia has a subset of BA's business award availability on Qantas flights. As such searching for availability on BA is a good start but not a guarantee. Iberia website is just plain useless.
