“They’re doing better, but their satisfaction scores are still pretty, pretty dismal,” said ACSI founder Claes Fornell.
Discount airlines JetBlue and Southwest showed the most improvement. JetBlue rose 2percent to 83 and Southwest climbed 5 percent to 81. Fornell says it’s largely because they have less fees than the legacy airlines.
Overall, the satisfaction index for airlines went from 66 to 69 on a 100- point scale, near the bottom of all industries measured in the ACSI.
Only subscription TV and Internet service providers rank lower.
