Booked award economy tickets on Iberia - anyone know if it’s possible to upgrade to business and if so best guess at cost in points or $? (Nyc to Mad)

If there’s business award space then I don’t see why you couldn’t cover the point/tax differential.

Not with cash, you would need to pay the points difference.

You may be able to bid for an upgrade just before departure but best approach is to rebook a business class ticket. If you used BA AVIOS points, business class is 60K points each way vs economy at 20K each way for that route. Using AA miles, awards are 57.5K miles each way for business class vs 30K for economy.

Iberia is 34k/50k Avios (offpeak/peak) for distances between 3k-4k miles in business class. Also BA charges massive fuel surcharges for Iberia awards.
