Premium Economy seats on A346 LHR-MAD

Does IB allow Economy passengers to select Premium Economy seats on the A340-600 flight between LHR and MAD? The seat map looks blocked out for Premium Economy on some flights, but open on others (eg today’s flight looks blocked but the seats are open for tomorrow). Is it load dependent?

Yes, it's load dependent as to whether or not the Premium Economy cabin is used. The same applies with the daily B777 return service which BA operate between London and Madrid, where economy passengers may find themselves in World Traveller Plus, and some Club passengers can find themselves in First.

MAD-LHR, it's load dependent.

LHR-MAD, BA opens up the cabin 72 hours before departure, and FLY decides whether you're suitable enough to have access to it. Approx 48 hours out, if the main Y cabin isn't too busy, the Y+ cabin will be blocked for trim.

Re the BA460/461 777 service, the WT+ cabin follows the same T-72 logic, though sometimes is not displayed on at all even at OLCI.
