I am happy to be back on Flight-Report with some new reviews, as some of you know I am short of holidays meaning I have no time to go abroad for a long time and then it’s ruling out long haul options albeit the most interesting. :(
So I am stuck with the week-end, I wanted to fly and do something out of the ordinary in Europe, I settled with a day trip from Paris to Madrid then Frankfurt and back to Paris.
Avgeeks will have notice on the spot the reason of this routing. After British Airways (http://flight-report.com/en/report-4697.html) I wanted to fly with a new 787 carrier, and I elected LAN Airlines, who operates as a fifth freedom flight MAD-FRA (coming from SCL). This flight was previously operated by A340, then 767 and for few weeks now with their flagship Dreamliner.
To reach Madrid from Paris you have 3 options, Iberia, Air Europa and Air France, the later was my 1st choice but their flight is leaving too early for my taste (around 9h30am) and CDG is less handy than ORY for me, my 2nd choice was Iberia, I never flew with them and even if I know they are like a low-cost on their European flight it is still interesting to add a new airline and they do depart from ORY, but again timetable didn’t fit well (around 9h00am). Eventually I am stuck with Air Europa and their convenient 10h15am departure.
Finaly to go back from Frankfurt to Paris, the only option is LH at 8:30pm (last AF flight is leaving around 6pm which is too early, and I want something which is not sucré or salé)
Then today's routing is featuring 3 flights with 3 different airlines, 3 different aircraft and 3 different alliances!
To sum-up a pretty standard flight on an uninspiring route, I was glad to be on-board one of their new 737 to try out the Sky Interior features, it’s definitely a step-up and make the whole cabin experience much more modern.
Comfort is average but seats do recline, TV are nice but they could be of better use if they show airshow and safety videos on it.
Crew were friendly and attentive.
I hope you enjoyed this report but keep on reading me for the try-out of LAN 787-8 ;)

Thanks a lot for the FR. My sister will maybe fly with them next summer, so it's nice to see that it isn't a bad company.
Thanks for sharing this FR
No lounge access with UX ?
You were lucky to fly a Sky Interior cabin
See you soon on LAN's 787
A nice interior and a friendly crew almost make this UX flight a good one ;)
Thank you for sharing.
Thanks for sharing this FR!
The sky interior does good good indeed, but the cabin looks a bit cramped though. I also agree with you about the use of the TVs...its a total bummer.
Thanks for this FR. A nice routing with 3 different airlines.
I didn't know LAN was now flying its 787 on the SCL-MAD-FRA route.
It looks like you have had a pretty nice day by logging this new airline for you and the 787 to follow!
