Travel Trends, The Airlines And You
The news is in, delays are down,baggage handling has improved and yet complaints appear to be up. This trend is confusing to some, but if you truly take a minute to delve deeper into travel by airlines, you will see that something else is up too. The number of travelers choosing to fly to their destinations has been steadily on the rise as well, leading to more crowding, more flights and longer lines, thereby making an increase in complaints on travel a bit more understandable.
According to the latest trends on travel by airlines, the number of passengers choosing to fly has been steadily on the rise for the past decade. Despite a bit of a fall during the last few years with the recession, travel is estimated to continue to rise at least 7% each year. This puts the number of travelers flying at between 1.5 and 2 billion per year. With this steady increase, of course you can expect to see a steady increase in complaints on air travel. In addition, with the new security measures, the airlines have been working out the kinks in new scanners, new technology and new ways of coping with possible threats. Despite these changes, most travelers are still happy with their experience.
In saying this, there are still complaints that will continue to plague the airlines. The most common complaints on travel are still those we have seen in the past including:
- Lost Baggage
- Overbooked Flights
- Stolen Bags
- Delays In Check In
- Unknown fees
Obviously, airlines are going to continue to have complaints made against them. As air travel continues to grow, people will continue to see changes and have to adapt to these.
