Compact umbrella

“A mainstay! You never know when the weather is going to change.”

 

Sneakers, shorts and T-shirt

“You can wear them to take a walk and to go to the hotel gym.”

 

Sweater or cardigan

“Great for when it suddenly gets chilly.”

 

Jeans

“The biggest wildcard of all, you can wear them to pound the pavement or to go to a nicer place.”

Book

“At the moment, I’m reading Blindness by José Saramago.'

 

Magazines

'To read between books!'

 

Music

'I’ve been listening to Elis Regina, Diana Ross, Gal Costa, Michael Bublé and Norah Jones a lot — incidentally, I discovered her latest album through the audio selection available on the entertainment system on LATAM aircraft.”

 

Movies + TV shows

“Another good distraction during your flight is the variety of content available through the LATAM Entertainment app*. On my own mobile phone, I watch comedy TV shows like The Big Bang Theory and Modern Family, in addition to movie releases each month, of course.”
