Not just an indication but very well discussed above. Monday 8th. FRA as the morning rotation & afternoon down to MAD. BA.com does not show A380 !

It doesn't seem to be allowing you to book at B2B at Madrid using the 15.15 outbound flight. Do we think the best approach is two singles here or will they do it on the phone?

Just looking at a dummy booking and on the 10th Nov flight to Madrid, it appears it is just the lower deck club available.
Whether they open up First/Upper Deck Club if there is demand we may have to wait to see

My mistake. There are weekend flights available too, just not exactly the same as weekdays in all cases.
