It´s good to know. Is it the first A319 for the spanish flagship?

I heard Boeing was complaining about Iberia being forced to acquire Airbus products due to political reasons. Does that mean that Iberia could be thinking by any means of getting Boeing planes?

Thank You!

Iberia have had A319's for a while, mostly based out of Miami i believe, until recently where they shut the hub down. RobK what tracker do you use?

IB has had 5 A319s (correct me if the number is wrong) based in MIA for their mini-hub. That was closed last year due to US visa requirements for transit passengers and as a result the planes were transferred to Spain. I am due to fly the A319 between LHR and BCN in May, hopefully I get the newest one! BTW how are IB A319s to fly in?
