Iberia is increasing seats on its Madrid to Tokyo Narita route next year, just in time for the Summer Olympics and the inevitable increase in tourists. It currently flies five times a week between the two cities.

From the 29th March 2020 it will replace the existing A330-200 service with its new A350-900 aircraft which we reviewed here. This will increase the size of the business cabin from 19 to 31 seats, as well as add 24 premium economy seats.

Iberia adding Japan flights

From 17th June, Iberia is adding an additional two daily Tokyo flights, making it a daily service.  These will operate on Tuesdays and Wednesdays outbound and Wednesday and Thursdays on the inbound.

If you are heading to the Olympics next year or simply want to visit Tokyo, flying via Madrid is a cheaper way of doing it. You can read our guide to low-tax redemptions on Iberia here and save yourself a pretty penny when compared to British Airways’ taxes and fees!

  1. OT: Can I get a supplementary card on my Plat account for a friend who lives overseas?

    And if I get him the gold/green card, would he get the full insurance benefits?

    • Shoestring says:

      you don’t have to give a different address for your supp

      you are legally liable for all the expenditure (as main cardholder) so Amex basically wash their hands of most other complications

      you can give a supp card to your best mate, an old girlfriend, your 15YO kid if you skip the facts a bit, yourself (ie get 2 cards) etc etc – Amex don’t care that much because their risk has not been increased, since you the main cardholder will still have to settle the bill

    • I called them, and the advice they gave me was to just use my address. So I did.

      I’m sure I’ll get a letter in mail asking for his proof of ID and residence, but I’ll deal with that when I get there

    Link for new Pointbreaks list. Not too bad this time:

    • As somebody said Hotel Indigo in Stratford upon Avon or 15,000. Just refurbished at a cost of millions in next town to me.
