In Remembrance

Dick McKeever, an ASQ fellow and former board member, died last month after a long battle with cancer. McKeever, a 19-year member of ASQ’s Cincinnati Section, served on the board from 2005 to 2009.

Mike Nichols, a former ASQ president, called McKeever “humble yet passionate, dedicated and always willing to help, a model of what a volunteer leader should be.” McKeever’s family requested memorial donations be made to Hospice of Cincinnati—Blue Ash.

And recently, several airlines have been called out for especially poor customer service‚ÄĒcanceling hundreds of flights, dragging passengers off planes, threatening families with jail. But aside from apologizing after the fact, action is rarely taken to prevent these situations.

What can airlines do to improve the customer experience and avoid these PR nightmares?
