The seats were first seen almost 2 years ago during FITUR (Madrid's Tourism Fair) in early 2004 and I still keep the brochures that I got there.
Nope. That's when the new Business Plus service was oficially put into service, but the seats have been out since the arrival of EC
-IZX in October 6th, 2004.
The 10 A340-600s currently in service have those new seats, and about 6 A340-300s should have them installed at the moment.
|Quoting Daron4000 (Thread starter):|
does anyone know about the rollout schedule and whether it is serving Chicago yet?
The retrofitting of the A340-300s is expected to be finished in April or May 2006.
IIRC, another a.net member who is an Iberia employee said something about ORD
being one of the main destinations for the new Business Plus equipped aircraft so it should be already more common to see the new seats instead of the old ones on the MAD
