Iberia To Introduce Long-Haul Premium Economy Product
MIAMI – Iberia announced this week they’ll introduce a new Premium Economy product on their long-haul fleet this summer 2017. Iberia’s A330-300, A340-600, and upcoming A350 aircraft will feature the new cabin. The first destinations to get the new product will be Bogota, Buenos Aires, Chicago, and Lima.
The Iberia premium economy cabin will be in a 2-3-2 configuration. Iberia’s long-haul fleet consists entirely of Airbus aircraft, which already have eight seats per row in Economy, so the carrier will take out one seat per row for this new Premium Economy.
As a total, the A330-300 will lose seven Business Class seats and gain 21 Premium Economy seats, and the A340-600 will lose 10 Business Class seats and gain 23 Premium Economy seats.
As said in the video above, Iberia’s new Premium Economy will feature:
- 37 inches of pitch.
- 19 inches of width.
- 7 inches of recline.
- 12″ personal televisions.
- Adjustable headrests and footrests.
- A welcome drink, amenity kit, and other enhanced services.
