If I were to connect in BCN from a BA flight (from LHR) to an Air Nostrum flight (to VLC), what would the views be like while transiting (LHR-BCN codeshare with IB, same with BCN-VLC)?
Could someone please confirm whether Air Nostrum and IB do or don't now offer inclusive refreshments?
Thanks a lot.
Iberia doesn't offer free bar anymore, unless you fly business class. The Air Nostrum service is now more difficult to interpret than it was before.
If you are flying a single-class cabin (CRJ-200; ATRs; Dash) in a short flight, you will fly their "Regional Business Class". There, you get a breakfast if you fly during the morning, and "refreshments" otherwise. The "refreshments" stuff seems a bit confusing. For sure you'll have a juice and a coffee/Coke, etc., and then sometimes they give you a "disappointing" box with peanuts, and sometimes they give you a sandwich (which is better!). I guess you get one or other depending on the schedule (¿?).
On longer flights (+ 90 min, more or less), you have "breakfast" (6am to 10:30 am more or less), "appetizer" (10:30 - 13), "lunch" (13 - 15), "refreshment" (15-19), or "dinner" services.
The worse (from my point of view) is flying their 89-seats CRJ-900. There, the "all business class" concept does not apply anymore (noooo, pleaaaase!), so the cabin splits in tourist class and regional business class. In tourist, you get only "refreshments" anytime. In business class, you get the same service as in the long flights regardless of the duration. The positive thing is that they only have a few CRJ-900, so the 80% of the Air Nostrum flights are operated by "only one cabin" aircrafts, which is better for the passengers paying low fares.
Newspapers are given to everybody that is seated in an Air Nostrum flight.
To sum up, take into account the schedule of your flights, their duration (short flight), and the aircraft you are taking. Then, combining all this information, you get the meal you will get. Even easier, enter IBeria website, check your flight (as if you were willing to buy another ticket), and in the same page you get the fare, click on the "IB8xxx" number and all the info about the flight (including meals) will appear.
airport (which is the one of my city), IMO it is an airport very easy to navigate through. Unfortunately, BA
flights coming from London park in the M4
gates (the ones that belong to terminal A), and Air Nostrum flights operate from M0 gates (the one that belong to terminal C - regional). So, it is the opposite side of the airport. However, don't worry: all the terminals are connected by a huge corridor, so once you are in M4
gates, just go ahead and ahead and ahead once again until the bulding doesn't continue anymore. jeje. Then, you arrived. If you arrive here in an Iberia flight, I'm not sure but I think you park in M1 (or sometimes M2) gates, next to the ones of Air Nostrum.
Minimum connection time is 60 min.
