I have done that CAI flight on IB a few years ago. It was miserable, even in J. Standard short-haul configured aircraft and the flight arrived into MAD at 330h. For the same price I'd take the MS...

Iberia does fly to Barcelona - from Madrid, and only Madrid (aside from the LHR flight which I can't imagine will last much longer). Which kinda proves my point, no?

As far as your attempt to use...

At what point do I have a right to change flights?

Last spring there was a momentary cheap J fare on IB MAD-MEX over the new year (995). As I was planning to be in MEX on those dates I quickly booked flights for my dates. And as I was driving at the...
