iberias airbus A340-200

I'm flying to Guatemala from Madrid. According to my ticket it's an airbus A 340 -200 but the aircraft is not in the list given by seat-guru.As I'm travelling with a child, I like to toget the first seats in tourist class I have bboked seates according to what the person in reservations reccommended but I want to be sure I get what I want. Any hints?( the drawings from Iberia are so small it's not possible to read them)

Iberia operate either a A340-300 or A340-600.

The -200 version of the A340 aren't used by many airlines.

Looks like an error.

IB operates the A343 and the A346, no A342 in the fleet.

I´ve noticed that also on the Sunday FRA-MAD leg is the A342

operating aircraft.

Here´s the link to the actual fleet list

www.ch-aviation.ch/aircraft.php…

The only idea is that they show the single operated by Gestair A343 as the A342?.

Btw. a pretty oldfashioned machine with cn 88!.

While Iberia only operate A340-300 and A340-600 aircraft, I believe that they are using the -200 and -500 designations in their schedules to indicate aircraft that have been fitted with their new, fully-flat, business class seats.
