I say it shouldn't make any difference. If they have any good inventory management, and they realize the increased sales activity after they confirmed that no-shows still get to keep the promo, they can assume with a very high probability that tickets purchased between that initial confirmation and the promo end time, are likely to be no-shows (especially when same passenger purchased multiple one-ways, always into MAD and never from MAD).
If they were smarter they would require a cancel without refund in order not to get a clawback.
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.

In other news, while the rest of the Nasdaq fell 2.1% today, Iberia went up 300%.

Maybe they'll offer more bonus Avios to cancel without refund at this point. :P

That would be more classy. However, if they want to ensure extra flights are cancelled they are more likely to threaten that they will cancel the bonus Avios if flights aren't cancelled.

If anyone is looking for a job, I hear Iberia is hiring new reps.

Indeed. I'm sure their accounting department would be much happier with that too.

That post probably belongs as part of this thread.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

No. Do you have tickets? Did you buy on a card from an issuer where charges fall off before posting?

Charges from foreign airlines do that a lot.

Is anybody having complications logging into their Iberia Plus account?

It is not allowing me to log in?

Thanks
