Air travel is a dish best served with simplicity, comfort and speed. LATAM was an early customer of the Boeing 787 Dreamliner, a plane offering one of the best passenger experiences in any cabin and offers the planes on routes from North America, Europe Asia and Pacific to it’s home base in Santiago, Chile.
Naturally, we were excited to put the LATAM version to the test in their premier business class offering.
Our crew was charming, engaged and very bright throughout greeting, service and deplaning. Regular rounds were made up the aisles to ensure every passenger need was cared for. Very impressive, indeed.
Dreamliner lighting, larger windows and air flow give the cabin a crisp touch while large, updated entertainment systems proved easy and intuitive to use. Somewhat surprisingly, LATAM offers a particularly good selection of television box sets, films and other entertainment, well above many airlines we’ve recently experienced.
Tall passengers often struggle to sleep in business class with cramped footwells on many of the most preferred “new” generation business class seats, but this seat allowed plenty of space to toss and turn. If we were being picky, we’d love an extra mattress pad for a long night flight and a better duvet and pillow – but it’s not hard in the slightest to get a great rest of on board.
We love the lighting, the blackout windows, the air pressure, spacious bathrooms and the natural humidity of the cabin. LATAM business is an excellent choice indeed, and one we’ll certainly opt for again. We’d dare to say it’s highly underrated from a sleep standpoint.
