IB 6824 GRU-MAD A340 Business Class

Recently flew this route on a cheap one way business class fare with LA flight numbers but operated by IB. Thought the review may be helpful for anyone flying this route or who is thinking about flying the route. I was happy to finally fly in an A340 which is one that has eluded me over the years 😃. Please enjoy

Thanks. It was certainly a treat. Not sure how many IB has left but I imagine it won’t be much longer they are in service.
