Skytrax: 2015 World’s Best Airline Awards
If we have an unhappy client in our travel agency, 9.5 times out of 10 it has to do with the airlines.
Why? Well, in my humble opinion, the American traveler has taught the American airline industry that price alone is the predominant force driving their airline ticket buying decision. Consequently, the American airline industry has moved towards becoming merely a commodity with fairly consistent price wars being waged on the Internet.
As business owners for decades now, Carol and I learned a long time ago that the best is never the cheapest. And because the American consumer tends to value the cheapest most of all, our airlines have long ago given up the seat of world’s best airlines to foreign competitors.
