My understanding is that IB doesn't allow any changes or cancellations to partner award tickets.
And RT required.
Hardly seems worth the savings.

Please CMIIW.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Does Iberia at least allow changes/cancellations within 24 hours of booking?
Sometimes it doesn't pay to save money.

Correct. "Changing an award incurs a $55 penalty, but the cost to cancel an award is the lessor of taxes paid or $55." - Dan
How about changing to another flight same day? same fees?

BA has raised taxes from ~$8 to ~$28 (CAD) on partner redemptions on Canadian accounts.

Changing your address to anything in the US brings it back down to $5.60

Per TPG AA flights from MIA to Cuba were not affected by this rule, would price at 4,500.
