A Tale of Excellent Service

On our trip, we booked with Southwest and ended up on an AirTran flight for the last leg of our trip.

Upon arrival in the terminal in Baltimore, everything seemed okay. But apparently there were mechanical problems with the airplane. It could have been a very, very bad experience but it wasn’t… aside from the people who missed their cruise ship… AirTran did a great job making things right.

Here’s the Friday Five of what how they won at customer service:

1. They kept us all informed about delays and when they were going to give another update.

2. They gave an update when they said they would. At one point they came to give an update and the lady said, “The update I have for you all is that there is no update, they are still inspecting the plane.”

3. They gave us vouchers for lunch ($10 a passenger). Since we already ate lunch, we went over to the Mexican restaurant got a drink and some chips and queso dip for an afternoon snack.
