Someone answered my question and the aircraft was a specially configured aircraft with only about 65 or 70 seats, IIRC it was a Boeing 737-800. It was a European charter company, and they were doing a Trip all around the world. They were coming from some place in Brazil, and after Antofagasta they continued to Easter Island, then Hawaii.
So, to answer your question, there are around the world trips, but only in charter mode and, probably, at a very high ticket price for the passengers.
