Upper Deck On IB 743s?

Sun Feb 01, 2004 11:01 pm

I was just looking at a seating plan of an IB 743 and it only shows 12 P class seats; this seems to be an error, because the plan shown is only about the same size as a normal 747 (-200) upper deck?

Can anyone tell me what the actual configuration is?

Muchos gracias!

Iberia´s 747-200s only have 8 P class seats at the upper deck. There´s even one of them that only has 4 seats.

As you said before, 743s have 12 P class seats up there.

Anyway, this is all going to change this year. First class is going to be removed from all Iberia´s flights. Business Class is going to ve revamped and new seats will be introduced, with a very nice design and totally flat when fully reclined. Iberia´s long haul fleet will offer only two classes of service...I already have some brochures i took yesterday at Fitur that show some pics of the new seats.

Sadly, at the moment there are no news about changes to IB´s economy class seats.
