LATAM Chile will introduce paid Buy-On-Board (BOB) product effective April 26, 2017. This will replace all complimentary food and beverages on domestic flights.
I would say that the prices presented on the website are reasonable for foreigners but expensive for Chileans. Don’t think that they will have many takers at these prices.
You can access LATAM Chile’s web page for Mercado LATAM here.
Here are some products:
Wine & snack for $9.25
Sandwich, chips & beer for $9.25
Sparkling wine for $4.62
Red or white wine for $4.62
You have to remember that there are several of these LATAM airlines that are separate legal entities. They have operations in addition to Chile in Argentina, Brazil, Mercosur (Paraguay), Ecuador, Colombia and Peru.
Not sure if this Mercado LATAM menu is the only food available for economy class passengers between Santiago and Isla de Pascua (Easter Islands) that is a domestic Chilean flight.
This change will affect frequent fliers as well because LATAM doesn’t have a single domestic lounge in Chile where elite members could “fill up” before the flights. Bit surprise that they gave less than two week notice about this change.
I have one domestic flight coming in early June on SKY Airline (never used them before) and will fly on LATAM Chile to Isla de Pascua and Tahiti same month in business class.
