No one is denying that airlines are facing higher fuel costs. Nevertheless, are you satisfied with riding in smaller, cramped planes? Does your “carry-on sized” bag even fit in the carry-on compartment? Do you fit in the seat?
Obviously, the current trend being used for commercial flights is downsizing into more economical planes. The cost per mile per passenger is lower, and they are more frequently filled to capacity. The outcome is that airlines are making higher profits per subcontracted flight. Are they overlooking customer experience in the process?
I recently sat next to a man who said one thing to me the entire flight, “Let’s just move this armrest out of the way.”
That was a statement, not a request for agreement. The flight was only one hour.
Have you ever experienced this situation? To be sure, it’s uncomfortable – regardless of what end of it you’re on. If you are a passenger who has trouble sitting in airline seats – whether you’re tall or wide – you’re not going to find it any more comfortable as the size of planes decreases generally.
The right to privacy is given up in a super-small economical commercial plane. And if you think that’s bad, you should know that most major airlines have made planes so small that if they could, nowadays they would put you on a cargo jet and call it a day if they could get away with it.
Are you willing to sacrifice comfort, and the value that you paid for, to get where you’re going?
In the year 2010, two research groups: Ameadeus and IdeaWorks, reported that airlines made $22.6 billion in ancillary revenue (like baggage fees). That was up from $13.5 billion the year before. Regulations to limit “hidden fees, add-on charges, etc.” are now being considered. After reading that, I am finding it hard to feel a great deal of sympathy for the cost of airline fuel.
