IB/Iberia Express questions

Wed Feb 26, 2020 9:32 am

What is the difference between IB and IB Express on European routes?
Is the cabin service the same (buy on board)
Is IBExpress a dedicated cabin crew?

Do Iberia cabin crew work on both longhaul and shorthaul as BA mixed fleet does?

Thanks

IB and IB Express are going to give you basically the same experience as a passenger.

IB Express is a separate company so all their pilots and cabin crew are unique to IB Express. They are not interchangeable although of course many pilots do transfer between the two, for example can become a Captain earlier at Express.

Iberia cabin crew operate both short and long haul. Same idea as Mixed Fleet BA. They do not have the two pools of cabin crew like BA do.

Basically the same seats, but business class meal on IB Express is a slight downgrade from IB business class meals and served on cheaper dining ware... but the fares are the same (and in some cases more expensive than IB). Both offer flights on Paris-Madrid sector though different Paris airports. No lounge for IB Express in Paris.
