SQI May 2018 Newsletter
What Do You Do When Mistakes Happen?

Hi [firstname|there],

In the US most firms believe they are really awesome at customer service but, no matter how good you are, problems occur.  Mistakes happen. I find most firms do not realize the danger of losing customers from mistakes and my recent experience reinforces that claim.

I flew to JFK in New York on a Sunday via Delta Airlines and then was connecting on Air France to Paris and finally Kiev I arrived about 10:30 AM Sunday May 28. Delta Airlines in Minneapolis was unable to issue me a boarding pass on their SkyTeam Partner, Air France.  They said to get one in New York. Little did I know Air France does not open their ticket counter until 1 PM for a 4:20 PM flight.  

If customer driven, a huge business would have “open hours” convenient to the customer. I have a $5000 business class ticket.
