The 787 has been certified for ETOPS-330 since 2014 and using Great Circle Mapper it looks like they can fly a direct routing. The FAA has reduced ETOPS for the Trent 1000 family in certain situations, but those might not reply to a Chilean-registered airframe or if they do, LATAM might be using frames powered by RR engines not under the FAA restrictions.

Perhaps if they were empty.
I think the 767-200ER is limited to ETOPS-180/207 and that means it would need to take a far more northerly track to stay within range of alternates and that would significantly increase the total flight time / distance to the point it would certainly impact available payload due to the need to load more fuel.
