ACSI: Better In-Flight Experience Increases Passenger Satisfaction

Record profits driven by lower fuel costs are allowing airlines to invest in the in-flight experience, resulting in higher passenger satisfaction according to the American Customer Satisfaction Index’s (ACSI) Travel Report 2016. Airline satisfaction is up 4.3% to 72 on the ACSI’s 100-point scale, matching the all-time high set in 1994. “Airlines have always been one of the lowest-scoring industries in the ACSI because the in-flight experience was miserable,” says Claes Fornell, ACSI founder and chairman. “Historically, people were generally happy before they got on the plane. Now, that is changing. New planes, more options for in-flight entertainment, and the return of free snacks have resulted in higher passenger satisfaction.” See the full release to see more about how passengers feel about the airlines.
