Iberia Fleet Airbus A330-300 Cabin Interior Class Configuration and Seats Layout
Iberia’s A330-300 aircraft is one of the first in its’ fleet to be outfitted with its upgraded Business Class product featuring flat-bed seating.
This aircraft operates on long-haul routes with 42 seats in Business Plus, and 278 seats in Economy Class, which Iberia refers to as Tourist Class.
All the flat-bed seats in Business Class have direct access to the aisle.
This particular A330-300 has more seats in the overall business class cabin than the A330-200.
It is also a less technologically advanced, older product than the A350-900.
Within the cabin, there are 29 business class seats, which is 10 more than the A330-200, representing a 53% increase in seats.
The seats are arranged in a 1-2-1 configuration across 7 rows with an extra seat in the rear right side of the cabin.
Lavatories and galleys are at both ends of the cabin, so you’ll want to generally avoid the first and last row for your own convenience.
Iberia’s A330-300 also has a premium economy cabin, unlike the older A330-200 variant.
In this cabin, you’ll immediately notice a smaller configuration of 2-3-2.
Also, there are 21 seats in a 2-3-2 configuration, which is 3 fewer seats than the A350-900.
There is a galley on the front-right section of the premium economy cabin.
The best seats will be in row 11, which is where the bulkhead is situated.
You’ll want to avoid seat 11A because the protrusion from the exit row door will undoubtedly hinder your legroom.
Iberia’s A330-300 economy class cabin consists of 242 seats, mostly in a 2-4-2 configuration and tapering down to a 2-3-2 configuration towards the back of the plane.
The seats are 18 inches wide and 31 inches in pitch.

The best seats in business class are considered the seats 8A and 8L.
The main disadvantage of the seats of the 9th row is location of the more crowded economy class behind.
Economy class seats may accommodate 242 passengers.
Most of the seats have 2-4-2 configuration.
These seats are located in two sections.

Also these seats have no floor storage during take-off and landing.
Passengers of the seats 10DEGH will take advantage of extra space for their legs.
These seats are considered good seats.
Location of the lavatories behind and limited recline are the main disadvantages of the seats 24DEGH, 24JL and 25AC.
The second section of economy class seats is located behind the exit row.
This section consists of 17 rows.
Due to the exit row the seats 26DEGH, 27AC and 27JL have extra space for passengers’ legs.
However, these seats are narrower than standard and have no floor storage during take-off and landing.
As the seats 38D and 38H jut out into the aisle they are often bumped by other passengers passing by and service carts.
As the seats 40DEH are misaligned with the seats in front the legroom of these seats is reduced a little.
Also the armrests of these seats are immovable reducing the width.
The noise from the galleys and lavatories behind and limited recline make the seats of the last 42nd row bad seats.
