Study About The Traditions And Taboos: Most of the developing countries or rather any country, is very strict about their tradition therefore, add this study to the list of “Things to do” before you travel so that you don’t end up getting in trouble.

Don’t Give Handouts: However tempting it may seem, don’t do this because you never know how the kids or their parents would react. In fact in many countries it could land you into trouble.

Apart from these, always keep your common sense at work because you never know when it might come handy. Plan your trip well and keep a close eye on money exchanges, don’t carry valuables, respect the culture and traditions of that area and above all, have fun!

Factors affecting airline Customer Satisfaction

Image

Like any other industry, even the air travel industryis directly affected by how happy and content the consumers are. There are a number of factors that affect them, some of which are in the hands of the Airline companies and some are not. However, all these factors together influence the level of satisfaction. A few things that affect this up to a large extent, in the airline industry, are as follows:

  • Prices: Like in any other industry, even in the Air travel business, customers are most easily affected by price of the service. Cheap airline tickets, airline deals and easy reservations etc., all of them together help the airline gather the goodwill of a customer.
  • Customer Service:Traveling can be stressful therefore a good customer service can help the traveler be comfortable and relaxed all throughout the journey. Airline staff must make it a point to serve with a smile as it will leave a lasting impression on the minds of the customer and as a result, the airline is sure to gainhappy customers.
  • Safety regulations: Though every traveler at the airport stresses about the security checks but in the end, they are always happy to know that they are safe and secured. Therefore, the airline staff should also be careful about the safety of its passengers; everyone is happy to know that they are safe!

Other services:

  • Regular updates to the flyer:The customers might get irritated when they come to know about a delay but they would still like to know about it in advance. This will help them plan their life around the air travel, better. Customer satisfaction is widely affected by how much the airlines value their customer’s time.
  • Food:This factor plays a major role on the level of satisfactionof the travelers. The variety can be limited but the airlines must make sure that the food is of good quality and is fresh.
  • Chaperon or special assistance: There are a few who require assistance at the airport like the senior citizens, young children, mothers with infants and people with disabilities and restricted mobility etc. How well such people are treated by the flight staff, helps the airline make a good impression, not just on those who are being served but also on those who are around and can see the services being rendered.

Any business flourishes only if the customers are happy and content. Therefore, customer satisfaction must be of prime importance for the airline companies as well. And they should always bear in mind that, “a happy customers will go back and tell their friends about them but a dissatisfied customer will tell the world!”

Preventing Yourself from Getting Stressed in a Long Distance Air Travel

Stress Less Air Travel

Taking an Air travel for a long distance can be really stressing. No matter what we do if we have a single bad experience in our travel we end up in a spoiled vacation or a spoiled business trip. It is thus really very important to follow certain basic rules while taking an air trip for long time duration. If we follow just some simple steps while travelling, then we can reduce a lot of stress and fatigue that comes along with the long distance air travels. These are few tips that you can follow to ease your long duration air travel.

Booking a Comfortable Seat

If it is fixed that you have to take an air travel necessarily of 12-20 hours, then it is very necessary to book your seat in a comfortable space. Although it is not possible to be comfortable in economy class for 12-20 hours, but if in case there is a situation then you should avoid taking a middle seat. Nothing can be worst than travelling in a middle seat for 12-20 hours. A middle seat would just add to the worries of the travel. Instead plan your journey well-in-advance and get a comfortable seat. Also do not mistake to get a seat near a washroom or gale.

Wearing Comfortable Clothes

Always wear comfortable clothes; a long journey travel is not something a matter of adding fashion-statement to it. Wear a sweatshirt or jacket that you can pull on and off according to your likings and according to the environment. Also keep an extra pair of clothing for you as in case of your clothes getting damped or stained with something on a long distance journey. It can be a very non-pleasing thing to travel in for a 12-20 hours journey with those clothes.

Keep your gadgets Handy

Your gadgets would save you from getting bored and also make your journey easy. There are entertainment tools available these days in airlines, but it is better to keep one of yours just in case they do not have one. I have come across one airline that has really good entertainment and comfort facility available for its travelers that is Copa Airlines.

Co-operating with Other Passengers

It is also very necessary to take care of the other travelers along with you in the journey. You should not do such activity that disturbs other passengers on the travel. Like do not keep high volumes of your gadgets, do not use some strong fragrances while travelling. People gets disturbed by these small activities of yours, you should be also keeping their point of view in mind.

There are many airlines providing comfortable leg spaces and sitting spaces. You should carefully select a good airline; if you get in a good airline then half of your problems would be solved on its own. There are many good airlines available with best services. One such best in class airline that I have travelled in is Copa Airlines. They have a good interior as well as more leg-spaces, comfortable seats and traveler oriented services.
