"In such a saturated industry, it is difficult for any airline to differentiate the customer experience. The planes themselves are virtually identical. The food, if it exists, is universally awful. Airport security is conducted by an entity over which the airlines have virtually no control. And virtually everyone who flies has a personal horror story."

Daniel - You hit upon the right point when you said - "stellar customer service comes down to how the business interacts with the customer on a personal level." It is all about how to handle those individual interactions that matters. This is where front line employees come into play. They can make or break your reputation with how they handle customer complaints and difficult situations.

Could you give examples of companies that have learned from the lessons? I would say: Virgin Air, Jet Blue, Ryanair and Norwegian. I look forward to the day when Zappos starts an airline... ;)
