It will look at the customer service aspect and compare the expectations of what the customer had come to expect and what the company actually delivered. It will look into the customer service, that lead to JetBlue’s early success and competitive edge against other airlines. It will examine if the Low-Cost Airline can continue to maintain its High-Frills Status.

Hence, fees for checked baggage, preferred seating etc. lost their negative effect on travelers’ mood. Also, the study brought forward that some of the dissatisfaction of facing those fees is reduced by new services like in-flight Wi-Fi or self check in. Still, the investigators found that the satisfaction level of airline passengers is far lower than those of hotel, rental car or credit card customers(Velasco, 2014).
