Iberia announced (02-Nov-2009) plans to undertake a major overhaul of its intercontinental Business Plus class, in a bid to attract more passengers. On its fleet of A340s, used on routes between Spain and the US, Latin America, South Africa and Tel Aviv, Iberia will remove a row of business class seats to expand the room between rows by over 30 cm, to 183 cm. Three aircraft have been modified so far and the last unit will be finished in Mar-2010. Meanwhile, the company is also working on a new design and new fittings for its long-haul Business Plus class as of 2012.  [more]
