Founded in 1927, Iberia now operates around 120 aircraft to more than 100 destinations in 40 countries from its main base at Madrid Barajas Airport. The Iberia group with Air Nostrum (IB Regional) and low cost Vueling operate more than 300 aircraft! The A320 family is the largest part of the airline's fleet with around 80 planes including the A319, A320 and A321 models.
This program features the A321 on one of its longest routes to Russia followed by the A320 to Paris.
Just Planes takes us on yet another captivating journey onboard flights to Moscow and Paris on the A320 and 321 operated by Iberia. We start off as is the norm with preflight briefing by the crew for our first round trip to Moscow. After the crew finishes their paperwork, its now off to the cockpit where we have a clear viewing of the pilots as they complete all of their cockpit preparations including the MCDU setup.
Other highlights during the flight were discussions by the Captain and First Officer on various procedures and a presentation on the cabin service onboard the A321. After our return flight to Madrid, Just Planes takes us on a tour of Iberia’s maintenance facility and their Engine Shop where the viewers have an opportunity to see how engines are cleaned, repaired, assembled and tested. This is definitely a portion of this DVD that you do not want to miss!
Our final round trip takes us from Madrid to Paris onboard the A320. Highlights of this flight were the walk around presentation by Laura our First Officer, scenic views from the cockpit and an interesting pilot eye camera view on landing at Paris Orly.
In summary, this was a fantastic DVD and there was never a dull moment largely due to the friendly crews who took every opportunity they could to share their knowledge and experience with us the viewers. -Recommended
