These 2 Words Are Ruining The Travel Service Industry

The travel industry is all about customer service. As a business, you provide a service to your customers. That may be transportation on an airplane, train, bus or car. It could also be a place to stay like a hotel room, villa, Airbnb or campsite. You may be responsible for feeding those visiting your town at a restaurant. Lastly, you may be providing an essential need or travel service like acting as a guide or working at an entertainment facility, historic place or a park. All these jobs are front line service positions that directly impact how much a traveler enjoys his or her trip, regardless if it’s for business or pleasure.

Back in the old days, it was easy to measure how well your customer service was doing. If the service you provided was done well, people would return. If you did really great, they might even tell their friends and you would then have more customers. If your service was bad, the customers wouldn’t come back. If you were really horrible, you could be sure they would tell everyone they knew and eventually you wouldn’t have any business left.

I’ve stopped looking for Spirit and Allegiant for domestic flights. If I’m looking for flights in Europe, we’re not going to book on Ryanair. If you read here regularly (and if you do, thank you!) I bet you think I’m going to be adding Frontier to this list because we just finished our first time flying with them. But nope, they’re fine and I’d fly them again if the circumstances were right.

The airline I’m going to be actively avoiding is United.

Here’s why…
