Heading home now, somewhat, with a connection via Madrid Airport. One of my favourite airports to travel through. Such an easy job for connecting flights, and such a beautifully designed terminal 4 / 4S

This is my first time travelling with Iberia, Spain’s flag carrier (Owned by IAG), I must say this was probably one of the best flights I’ve took, why? Because the atmosphere just felt amazing! I had a perfect wing view seat, which was comfortable, nice looking aircraft, a sharklet for a view, and an ideal flight time of 1 hour. There wasn’t a service onboard however due to the length of the flight. If you wanted a snack or drink you would have to press the call bell to get one of the crew. The passenger next to me did so. Sadly one thing I don’t like of the airline is that their onboard meal service isn’t free, as with their IAG partner British Airways.

Overall a nice flight, with a cloudy take off from Lisbon, and some nice intermittent clouds over Spain with a scenic approach into Madrid Airport

  1. Thank-you for the flight, Casey.  Although the trip was unremarkable, it was relaxing enough and seemed like a pleasant flight.  I thought it was cool to see your plane spotting location during your takeoff.  I always get a kick out of how Castilian Spanish sounds as compared to Western Spanish.  It is almost sounds like a different language, despite it being the same language.   I wish I could write about something spectacular I noticed in your flight, but in this case, it was just a nice flight.  Thank-you again.  I really enjoyed the video.  Time to move on to the next flight.

  2. Another excellent instalment in your trip. Must try Iberia at some point! That landing was also very smooth. I noticed the pilot flying landed with Flap 3 instead of Config Full 😀
