Flying TFN-MAD In AUG. , Can I Expect A 346?

Wed Jul 04, 2007 7:49 pm

Hi guys ,

I´m flying TFN-MAD the 22 of August ..

Normally the flight is operated by a 343 , but sometimes a 346 is used ...

Very little chances, it's also high season for most of IB long haul destinations so 346's would probably stay on JFK, MIA, EZE, MEX, ORD, etc.

Anyway, there is always hope for the unexpected to happen

Hi LHStarAlliance,

I comment you the Tenerife North - Madrid operations scheduled for this August 22nd:

IB-967 TFN-MAD 07:15 10:50 321

IB-959 TFN-MAD 11:25 15:00 340 (Operated by Audeli)

IB-951 TFN-MAD 19:50 23:25 343 (Operated by Audeli)

Audeli operates only Airbus A340-300 bought from Iberia or from Air France.

If you can change your flight to August 23rd, at 19:50 is scheduled a pure Airbus A340-600 flight...

Doesn't matter.

Good luck.

Gerard

I'm not sure but I'd imagine the ex-Air France A340-300 aircraft that went to Audeli still retain their former operators interior. Just like the ex-Singapore Air 747-400s that flew for Iberia still retained the ex-Singapore interior.

If this is the case then I'm sure it would be a comfortable A340-300 ride although I have to say I find the seats on Iberia's A340-300s quiet comfortable.

Enjoy your flight!

I often fly the LPA-MAD route.
I flew an IB A346 last september, and I just cam back from LPA last week on an A321.
It seems that IB added some frequencies this summer and doesn't use anymore the A343 and/or A346 on that route.

I doubt they will use it to TFN. I found out that they re-introduced quite a few flights, using their former B752 now operated by Audeli on behalf of IB.
