SEATS ARE GREAT„, BUT SO IS SERVICE!

Airlines spend billions of dollars in research and development to improve and refine their seating in business and first class.  Seating is one of the few key ways that an airline can differentiate itself from its competition.  Moreover business and first class tickets of course command the highest profit margin.  According to a recent article in the New York Times, the manufacturing of each business class seat can cost up to $80,000.  It could cost up to $250,000 to build a first class seat…. Now if only some of these airlines (particularly certain U.S.-based ones) could only offer flight service that is consistently excellent in all classes of service! 

In any case, check out this recent article from Fast Company….
