Did you know that you can fly with Lan Chile between Madrid and Frankfurt?  The daily flight arrives in Madrid from Santiago and then continues to Frankfurt as flight LA 704.  Departure time from Madrid is just after 3pm arriving into Frankfurt just before 6pm with a flying time of 2.5 hours. The Boeing 787 operates this service and certainly offers a much nicer business class product than similar airlines flying the same route. No economy class meals today, today it’s business class to Frankfurt, enjoy!

This is a short flight so there are no inflight menus or meal choices however there are welcome drinks when you first board the aircraft. Cabin Crew will offer the same meal tray to everyone in business class. Whilst wines are offered to everyone with their meals and you are able to order a wide range of alcohol, you just need to ask the crew what the options are.

THE INFLIGHT SERVICE

As mentioned previously the cabin crew will offer you a welcome drink of Pisco Sour. In Chile these are served in Summer and Winter usually before a meal and consist of juice from small lemons, pisco, powdered sugar and ice. (Some also have a bit of raw egg white for the froth)

Since this flight was under 3 hours the airline only offers a cold main and a dessert, however if you were flying 3 hours or more a hot meal may be an option. However in all fairness this meal was very tasty and quite a stunning looking meal for such a short sector, it consisted of: Iberico Ham salad served with Las Doscientas Chilean Balsamic dressing, a warm bread roll and for dessert a very tasty fruit cheesecake.

It was such a short flight I really didn’t want it to end, a lovely aircraft, great cabin crew and a fabulous meal, if only it lasted another 10 hours!
