It might not be common knowledge, but Iberia has been rapidly installed a Premium Economy cabin onto several of its airplanes. Perhaps these are not selling well, as Iberia Plus has launched a promotion where Premium Economy rewards are discounted for a limited time. Your reward must be booked before 18 June, 2017. You can fly between now and 1 October, 2017 at the reduced rates, although the discount appears to only apply to off-peak dates, which you can look up here.
Iberia is currently offering Premium Economy service on some, if not all, of its flights between Madrid and the following destinations:
- New York
- Mexico City
- Bogota (Colombia)
The usual price of an off-peak one way in Premium Economy to Boston, Chicago or New York is 25,500 Avios, but during this promotion that price will be discounted to 22,000 Avios.
For Miami, Mexico City and Bogota, the regular off-peak price of 31,750 Avios is reduced to 27,750 Avios.
As always, members of British Airways Executive Club can “Combine Your Avios” and move those Avios into Iberia Plus, which you should always do when booking flight rewards on Iberia…
This promotion isn’t really a game-changer, and you will probably still want to fly in Business Class if you can find the reward space, especially with off-peak Business Class costing only 34K to New York, Chicago and Boston. But Premium Economy is certainly going to be a more comfortable ride than true Economy, and perfectly fine for a daytime flight heading west to North America…
