Iberia Airlines and stylish airport

Iberia Airlines and stylish airport

[ Mar.

2014 ] We bought British Airways tickets, but the one we flew with was Iberia Airlines which was bought by BA.

It was just lunch time, but we had to buy the foods, like cheap flight.

The fare was not cheap, though.

After seeing snowy mountains from the window, I saw the reddish brown ground all over.

Was it Napoleon who said “Africa begins at Pyrenees”?

The Madrid airport terminal 4 where we landed was very stylish.

The ceiling looked wooden and waving.

Apparently, Spanish architect Antonio Lamela and British architect Richard Rogers designed it.

It must have been built when Spain could spend money…

I had a look and found that they started building it in 2000 and opened in 2006.

In the spacious hall, there were not so many people and it was quiet.

By the way, on the way back, our flight was operated by BA.

The sandwich was free, but what I do not like about BA is its arrogance.

They announce things only in English.

Any flight usually announces in their language and English.

It was a flight from Spain, so they should have said things in Spanish, too.
