Having bought an economy class ticket for about 50 Euro for my Madrid to Stockholm flight, I got an offer to upgrade to business class while checking in online. I already have access to the lounge in Madrid using my British Airways status but since the price of 663 SEK was very good, I decided to take it. I was also hoping I´d get the tier points for the upgraded class but I guess it doesn´t work that way.

A Night in Madrid
200th flight in British Airways business class on the new A350 featuring the new club suite, I spent the night in a hotel near Sol Metro Station.
I got this offer to upgrade to business class while doing on-line check in and decided to take it.
Madrid Barajas International Airport
Iberia Premium Lounge Dalí
Iberia Premium Lounge Dali, the agent was able to change my seat from 1D to 2A 👍´I had a nice breakfast and left the lounge around 9:30am since our departure gate was a bit of a walk from there.
Boarding, Gate K69
Aircraft, A320 Neo (Getafe)
Business Class Cabin
Taxi & Take Off
We pushed back at 10:22am which was followed by a safety demonstration.
Around 10:52am, one of the flight attendants working in the cabin came to ask if I wanted coffee, tea or juice to go with my breakfast. I asked for green tea and apple juice but I guess they don´t have apple juice as I was still served fresh orange juice 😉
I don´t normally eat omelettes on planes but this one was perfect 😋
At 11:24am, the captain was on the PA to inform us that we expect to land in Stockholm at 1:50pm with a temperature of 20 degrees. It was actually good there was no personal screen to watch movies since I was able to take a nap 😉
At 12:35pm, duty free sales began.
Landing in Stockholm Arlanda Airport
We landed in Stockholm at 1:51pm and reached our gate in Terminal 2 five minutes later.
I was not intending to fly business class from Madrid to Stockholm but with the nice offer to upgrade, I just took it. I thought the crew were very friendly and professional on this flight. The meal served was very good as I really loved the omelette served, which I don´t normally like when served on planes. The seat was okay as well. Overall, a nice flight in business class using the upgrade system 👍
