Quoting Scouseflyer (Reply 3): IIRC they haven't actually ordered any A330s yet but one of the airlines that operates flights on their behalf have picked up a couple second hand and are flying them in IB colours.
I don´t think so........well, actually it is not true
Iberworld is the only airline operating a flight for IB, the CUN route and they are flying in Iberworld colours.
IMO IB will order some A333 to replace old A343 in routes such NYC, ORD, BOS, IAD, MIA, Canary islands...........and maybe TLV and DME and maybe some new routes.

A presentation that IB released for their investor day shows 2 A330s arriving in 2011 (page 79).
Page 45 shows another handful of this "new long haul twin engine not yet on order" arriving in 2011 and 2012, in parallel with the retirement of some A343s, therefore barely increasing their long-haul fleet (in my opinion, an overly conservative strategy).
