Disrupting The Friendly Skies: How United Is Changing the Customer Experience 1024 538 C-Suite Network

Executive Perspectives Live, one of the top online business shows on C-Suite TV, launches a new episode featuring Jill Kaplan, President New York/New Jersey Region, United Airlines talking about how they’re disrupting the airline industry by providing an excellent customer service experience across the board.

Host Jeffrey Hayzlett talked to Kaplan about taking over one of the largest markets in the world – the NY/NJ area, a $13 billion market, making customer service extremely important to United, with Kaplan calling it their “focus and dedication.” She says how humanization is a key component to tapping into special touch-points while going above and beyond to show customers you care.

Kaplan is aware that customers have choices, especially in a market as demanding as the NY/NJ market. The company’s goal is to create a “customer 360” experience that starts the moment someone clicks on the website, to when they buy a ticket, and ends when arriving at their destination. She states, “Because of the notion that people have a choice, we want to set the bar really high and be the best in class.”

Hayzlett also asked Kaplan about the changes customers will see industry-wide in 2019 and the biggest one mentioned was disruption. She added that there will be enhanced and targeted communications to meet the exceeding consumer demands, while continuing to infuse local voices and representation to meet the needs and wants of the

community. After all, Kaplan says, “traveling is about connections. It’s a gift we can create for folks.”
