A hot lunch and a lie-flat bed were the perfect antidotes to a bad sun reaction, as both led to sleep. This week’s Meal of the Week focuses on a business class lunch from Easter Island to Santiago.
This trip took place in 2012. At the time, LAN and TAM were still separate and my flight was operated by LAN Chile. While LATAM has taken delivery of 787s and A350s with a new business class product, it still retains 767-300s in the fleet with a business class pictured below:

The salad included mushrooms and cheese:
Desert was a multi-layered cake with a dollop of orange jam on top.
To date, this has been the best meal I’ve had on LATAM (six flights).
