Breakfast... an omelette with a croissant and orange juice, basically.

There is a pic at the bottom of page 2 I posted from a morning LHR-MAD back in April.

It was a plain omelette, and dry pastries.

Breakfast is not Iberia's strong point...

EDI - MAD Iberia Express 11.05 departure 'Brunch'

Not acceptable for a near 3 hour flight. Pastry more soggy than crispy. Fruit was actually very good though - usually I find fruit on planes awful.

If they insist on brunch, I'd have far preferred a cold plate, perhaps with Iberian ham, cheese and olives.

This was my first time travelling business with I2 and I struggle to see why you'd pay the premium - even the dishes are plastic. Very much a downgrade from mainline.

Flying with them again on Sat during dinner, which I think will hopefully be better.

It certainly looks a bit lame.

I am flying IB express next month MAD - MAN in C so wonder what I will get? By the looks of some of the meals it does vary. Some look very good but other like this one.. Well I think that I would have just eaten the bread!

My wife usually order the fruit meal which is good in her opinion. She usually just eats I the lounge and View the fruit as a snack.

I'm in mainline IB LHR - MAD so it will be a good comparison.

If your flight is after 12 I believe you get a proper dinner.

Breakfast on Iberia is atrocious, however, in my experience, lunch and dinner are more than acceptable.

So I hope both of your flights leave after 12

That, to me, looks like pretty decent economy class catering. I reckon it would keep me going!

It's a 4pm ish departure from Madrid. So it should be ok.

I now always book IB flights leaving to or from LHR/MAD as the on flight service and food is better than BA.

MarkLHR - basically what I got. Cheese omelette - no tomato sauce but 3 wee tomatoes. Yoghurt drink, fruit, breads and croissants. And more than one fizz. I actually enjoyed it more than I thought I would. I love how when you get more drinks they take you the wee packets of nuts. You wouldn't get that on BA unless you asked (and even then you'd probably get a look!).

Dinner MAD-LGW.

It was actually very good quality.

I do think, however, when flying European business there should at least be a choice between 2 meal options - when the hard product is essentially the same (which I completely accept) I do expect something more from the soft product.

I wouldn't bother with Iberia Express J again.
