Make This Better

Apr 11, 2017

The recent incident on United has caused us to take a closer look at the natural laws of customer service – those things you just can’t violate…

From our Chief Strategy Officer, Dave Andreadakis:

“It is a business decision to oversell. It is a business decision to accommodate crew transportation. It is a planning mistake to not have room for that crew. We can see all of these happening, even to the best of us. What is unimaginable is that United chose to leverage privileged access to forceful security to accommodate poor planning, tight margins, and despicable customer service.

Some perspective: You’re at a Home Depot. You pick out duct tape. You pay for the duct tape. Before you leave the store, an employee asks for volunteers to return their duct tape so they can serve other customers. You choose not to. You get ‘volunteered’ by the manager. You insist on keeping the duct tape. Security forcibly removes the duct tape and bloodies you. The CEO states that because you refused to comply, you were disruptive and belligerent. Legally, United was within their rights. But they broke every customer service law I can think of.”
