New Delhi [India], Jan 5 (ANI): The parliamentary standing committee on transport, tourism and culture yesterday tabled a report in the Rajya Sabha on the issues related to improving airline customer satisfaction.

The committee deliberated on the issue of exorbitant airfares charged during the festive seasons, holiday seasons, natural disasters and political/social unrest.

It also noted there were many incidents of manhandling, discourteous and rude behaviour by the staffers of various airlines.

Citing the case of Indigo, a majority of the committee members opined that the attitude of airline staff is very condescending, often uncooperative and on many occasions, downright rude.

The panel continued that while such "arrogant behaviour" should stop, there is also a need for soft skills training of the employees across airlines.

"Intensive training should be given to the crew and staff to extend courteous and decent behaviour to the passengers", the panel said in its report presented in the Rajya Sabha. (ANI)
