Not many people in the miles and points blogosphere cover economy class flights. It’s even rarer to see a South American carrier economy class flight review on the internet. I flew in economy class on LAN Airlines from SCL-MEX (Santiago to Mexico City). The total in-air flight time was 8 and a half hours.

The economy coach cabin on the Boeing 767-300 (763) was in a 2-3-2 configuration.
It was a red-eye flight and there was a coach amenity kit which consisted of an orange eye mask and ear plugs.
There was also a TV screen in the back of each seat for in-flight entertainment.
Headphones were provided in the seat back pocket in case you want to listen to music or watch something from the in-flight entertainment.
I was able to secure an exit row seat during online check-in due to my American Airlines Executive Platinum elite status.
The economy class dinner meal consisted of beef with potatoes, a side salad, cheese, crackers, and a dessert. That’s actually a lot of food in one plate and LAN Airlines uses real dishware.
After meal service, I reclined my seat and got some rest as I never touched the in-flight entertainment system. An hour and a half before arrival in Mexico City, I was served breakfast which was an omelet with bread and a side of fruit.
I was fortunate to be able to secure an exit row aisle seat on this flight because the legroom made a huge difference. The flight time is almost nine hours and it can be unbearable in a middle seat with no extra legroom. The service was fantastic on LAN Airlines and the flight attendants are always willing to accommodate any type of request.
