Lan Chile operates a daily Boeing 787 service arriving in Madrid from Santiago and then continuing to Frankfurt as flight LA 704. Departure time from Madrid is just after 3 pm arriving in Frankfurt around 6 pm with a flying time of 2.5 hours. The wide-body aircraft offers a more pleasant business class product than similar airlines flying the same route.
A welcome drink of Pisco Sour if offered by the cabin crew, 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.
Due to the short flight time, there are no inflight menus or meal choices. Wine is offered to accompany your meal, and additional alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks are available.
The Iberico ham salad served with Las Doscientas Chilean balsamic dressing is delicious and fresh, an excellent offering for such a short flight. There’s also a warm bread roll, and the crumbly fruit cheesecake is not overly sweet and is mouth-watering.
It was such a short flight I didn’t want it to end, a pleasant experience on a lovely aircraft, excellent cabin crew and a fabulous meal, if only it lasted another 10 hours.
