Are IB's A343's Being Retrofitted With New Seats?

Fri Jan 12, 2007 11:15 pm

As I mentioned in the question, are Iberia's A340-300's being fitted with new interiors in Y class. I know they are all getiin the new business plus seats. However, I was wondering if they were to get the new Y class seats as in the A346 with the headrests? Thanks in advance,

The A340-300s are being fitted with the new seat covers but not the new seats like the A340-600s have.

do they have the headrests or not? that's because IB flying directly on a daily basis to SJO might mean flying with only A343's. And I'm not ready t oo fly again with these aircraft after having experienced their very confortable A346's. I must say headrests make a big difference !

As far as I know they do not have the head rests. The A340-300s have their original seats but with the new seat covers that the new A340-600 seats have.

Its very disappointing!

In case they introduce the A340-300 in SJO and 346 in GUA-PTY I am ready to book to PTY and make the roundtrip to SJO with CM for an extra 250$. Its very disappointing that they did not add headrests on the A340-300 ! Oh and if you wonder why I'm like that its because I am totally fed up with having flown so many times the A340-300 and never the 777 !

They are working now on my home computer. Photobucket is probably blocked on my school computers which explains why the photos did not show.

Well you won't be flying the 777 anytime soon if you keep flying Iberia!  Wink

Don't worry, happenedto me on South African and LH as well! Everytime I have flown a carrier that could have chosen between the A343 or the 777 I have has to fly the 343.....and withthose hairy dryer engines they look less impressive than the 777 with their powerful 777...and precisely I'd love to compare what its like to take off with those 777's and their GE90's...As you all know the 343 has lots of trouble to get off the ground
