Airline Reliance on Service Indices Varies

New York-Quality-of-service indices have developed over the years in trunk airlines, but their uses as management or cost control checks vary among carriers. The reason for the variation is that not all airlines place equal reliance on them as infallible measurements that quality of service is in fact quality, or that it actually is impressing passengers as quality.

Packard Details Milestone Plan

. . . Management in the services will be improved only to the extent that capable people with the right kind of experience and training are designated to manage these major programs—in fact all programs. In order to be effective, program managers must be given adequate authority to make decisions on major questions relating to the program both in the conceptual development stage and in the full-scale development stage.
