Flying Iberia A340-600 between Brussels and Madrid Barajas

Ever fancied flying the A340-600 from Iberia? here's your chance .. on 11/12/2017 it's coming to Brussels again as cargo charter but leaving back to MAD empty. Iberia is selling ticket's on this flight so here's your chance to fly this rare bird out of Brussels.

That's a rather steep price: they won't fill the plane that way!

Does it say A340-500?
Now that would be cool :)

I think that's the way IB makes a difference in configuration of the AC. They do the same with the A342/A343.
Thus they have an A340-600 only fleet, besides the A330-200 and 300

Yes they do but they have 2 different cabin lay-outs on the A340-600's, maybe it has to do something with that.

The fact that Iberia is sending it over as a Cargo charter (no pax on board) means that they have something else covering the costs. I’d say it’s very likely every seat sold on the return flight is pure profit, no matter the price.
