Filmed in 4K, and in Premium Economy!
On the 20th July 2018, Iberia brought their brand new Airbus A350XWB in to service on the Madrid to London Heathrow route. This is replacing the Airbus A340-600 on the daily IB3166/IB3167 rotation for crew training for the next few weeks.
I was fortunate enough to be able to be on board the first commercial service for this aircraft. Iberia did not hold a special event for the entry in to service, however the crew were hand picked and were a brilliant crew!
After boarding, I was upgraded to the Premium Economy section of the aircraft which is not actually sold for this service. I was seated in 12A which has an absolutely fantastic view of the TrentXWB and the magnificent wing!
Throughout the whole flight, the crew made sure that all of the passengers had everything that they wanted, and were comfortable, and made sure that all of us on board who were there for this inaugural flight had the opportunity to get all the photos we wanted to. A huge thank you to Gemma, Pilar, Eduardo and the rest of the crew!
Overall, an absolutely fantastic experience with Iberia, and yet another brilliant flight on the Airbus A350! I'll definitely try my best be on board again!
