Although this emergency exit seat has great legroom, you will not manage to sleep much on a night flight. The galley is too close, its lights are kept on all night and flight attendant traffic is constant.
While the A340 is a dog, the seat is fairly descent. Good legroom on the window seats, IFE was serviceable but the meals in F lacked.
Great legroom! There is no seat in front of 59D making for plenty of legroom. Also, Iberia's fee for the seat reservation was only 30€ as opposed to 65€ for emergency exit seats. Proximity to the lavatories may be bothersome, but I'd say it's totally worth it.
Be Aware....The seat is beside the curtain into buisness class which the Crew are constantly throwing open as the galley is behind. The stupid design means that the curtain is always brushing against your legs - maybe trivial, but on a 13 hour flight when you are trying to sleep it is very annoying - mentioned it to the crew, but they did nothing to help. Also this whole area is lit from the galley lighting behind, again not helpful for trying to sleep.
It was my first time flying in PE and coming from always using Economy and being very tall (196) I did find the flight a more confortable one. That said, its still not what I expected, seats are hard . The row 11 seats have more legroom because of the bulkhead , but you cant actually extend your feet under the seat in front of you so I beleive that they are actually worse. I would avoid isle seats as all the dinner service for Business Class comes from the galley behind you and the FA are constantly goin g back an forth to serve dinner. Pros: You get a drink when you board the plane, you have your own bathroom, and you leave the airplane with Business passengers.
The seat is ok, however I will recommend to choose the A seat not the C. in the case of the A seat you have more privacy and don't have to be careful with your feed, the direct access to the aisle can be problematic for service or people walking in the aisle. The climate control in Iberia is always an issue, the plane was really hot at times. And for this particular flight one the bathrooms was disable due to a broken door. The soft part of the business service was goo, but the hardware is showing the age.
The row is right behind the first row right after the plane entrance and it has less leg room space (very limited for a 5,8 person) than any of the following rows (at least until row 29, as I was able to try during the boarding process). Not enough space to bend your knees and extend your legs
14C was a solid premium economy seat and I wouldn't agree that the galley is bothersome from this seat as it sits decently in front of the opening. (I'd agree with the comment for 15AC, however). Overall, Seats 14AC on this plane were fine selections and away from the lavs. Premium economy definitely offers a much more comfortable seat than standard economy with 37" pitch (not 31" pitch that Seatguru says), increased recline, wider seats, an amenity kit/blanket, and larger screens for IFE in an intimate cabin. But the service and food is about the same as economy even though it technically is a different menu. So, if seat comfort is what you're going for, then it delivers and I actually preferred PE on the A340 over the A330 a bit because of the dedicated lav and not having to go all the way back to economy (although that wasn't that big of a deal).
First row of PE seating is NOT a good seat. We had 11A and C. The business class is ahead of us and separated by a curtain that is constantly thrown onto you as the crew goes from the galley behind PE to serve Business. Totally annoying. Service on Iberia in PE is no where what other PE service is. It is worse that Economy. Buy PE for the seat but avoid the PE bulkhead seats the more leg room is not worth the annoyance .
