A LATAM Boeing 767-300, performing flight from Sao Paulo Guarulhos (Brazil) to Milan Malpensa (Italy), was enroute at FL360 when the aircraft descended to FL300, however, maintaining heading towards Milan.

About 175nm northeast of Las Palmas the crew turned the aircraft around reporting electrical problems and diverted to Las Palmas, where the aircraft landed safely about 40 minutes later after turning around.

Passengers reported the inflight entertainment system stopped working. The crew subsequently announced that an electrical fault forced the aircraft to divert to Gran Canaria.
