Top-rated airlines set themselves apart with friendly staff [J.D. Power 2024 North American Airline Customer Satisfaction Survey (SM)] ……
J.D. Power (Headquarters: Troy, Michigan, U.S.), an international specialized organization for research and consulting related to customer satisfaction (CS), announced on May 8, local time, the J.D. Power 2024 North America Airline Satisfaction Study (SM) ( J.D. Power has announced the results of its 2024 North American Airline Customer Satisfaction Survey (SM). This survey was conducted to measure airline satisfaction among passengers who have flown on major North American airlines within the past month, divided into three categories: first/business class, premium economy class, and economy/basic economy class. ing. This survey, which is the 20th, includes changes to the survey design. With the number of domestic passengers increasing further from the previous year*¹, and with no end in sight to crowded boarding gates, tight in-flight storage shelves, and high fares*², airlines are struggling to maintain customer satisfaction. Our research shows that significant investments in staff training and efforts to improve the overall flying experience with friendly, attentive service have resulted in some airlines delivering superior customer experiences, even in busy conditions. It contributes to providing the following. *¹ IATA “Passenger Demand Up 21.5% in February” https://www.iata.org/en/pressroom/2024-releases/2024-04-04-01/*² Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis, “Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers: Airline Fares in U.S. City Average”
https://fred.stlouisfed.org/series/CUSR0000SETG01The main takeaways from the 2024 study are: Passengers want to get to their destination easily and safely. Some might expect that airfares will have a big impact on passenger satisfaction, as airfares remain high after air travel has stalled due to the pandemic. However, according to this study, the biggest factors that actually influence an airline’s overall customer satisfaction are “ease of travel” and
“reliability.” Although “value for money” is important, it is even more important for passengers to have a smooth flight. Media coverage has a significant impact on “trustworthiness” scores: Passengers’ confidence in an airline is correlated with the coverage of that airline. Passengers who had been exposed to negative media coverage about an airline’s performance in the past year had 400 points (out of 1,000 points) lower satisfaction scores on the Reliability factor. Investment in human resources contributes to high ratings at top-rated airlines Southwest Airlines and Delta Air Lines, the top-rated companies in this survey, have made significant investments in human resources. These efforts led to significantly higher ratings in all areas of the study where interpersonal services made a difference. Michael Taylor, Senior Managing Director, Travel, Hospitality, Retail and Customer Service, J.D. Power: “There are many aspects of the overall air travel customer experience that airlines cannot control. This is one of the things that airlines can do to have a major impact on customer experience.The fact that this research shows that “people power” has a positive impact on the overall flight experience is a big win. Airlines that invest in staff training and recruitment are finding ways to overcome the negative effects of gate and cabin crowding by simply being nice to customers.
