Spanish Fly Part 2: How to Get Even More Value From Iberia’s Cheap Business Class Strategy to Europe

Here’s how to add on stops, depart from your hometown—and still save miles or dollars–with an airline that works with American Express, Chase, and Marriott points (and Capital One indirectly)

In this special report last month, we told you about Iberia’s delicious offering: cheap ways to get to Europe in Business Class with miles, points, or cash, starting at just $1,499 *OR* 49,000 miles or points with transfer bonus. Those were simple nonstop, round-trip tickets. But what if you don’t live in one of the airline’s U.S. hub cities, and/or maybe you want to go beyond Madrid at the other end? More on that concept here.

The beauty of these cheap flights to Europe is that they give you flexibility to do more with your trip like adding on stops and departing from your own hometown while still saving money. Let’s say you live in Chicago. You can make a stop in New York to see grandma Beatrice, pop over to Madrid for the La Paloma festival, fly down to see cousin Carlos in Málaga, and even catch a game at Yankee Stadium on the way back. That’s living.
