The LAN crew had just reported crossing waypoint PUBER when they inquired about a traffic at the same level at their 11 o'clock position on their TCAS display. While ATC was still responding the crew reported a TCAS resolution advisory shortly followed by the Andes crew reporting a TCAS resolution advisory.
Both crews complied with their TCAS RAs, once clear of conflict returned to their assigned flight level FL360 and continued to their destinations for safe landings.
