Over the last 3-4 years, QF has constantly touted it's 'record customer satisfaction' levels in it's Annual Reports. Given an increase in dissatisfaction reports over the last 8-12 months reported on AUSBT, I am curious about the following. For many years it was de-riguer for QF to hand out in-flight Customer Satisfaction surveys on international sectors to selected guests in their premium cabins. The process was reasonably intuitive and guest response/return levels high, due to the flight attendants check-back with the passenger in order to collect such surveys. I have not seen this type of survey used in quite a number of years. Whilst the internet has afforded a new metric for processing 'Customer Service' feedback, one would have to think that the online reporting method of issues would sway more to the negative side, rather than the positive. A large number of people reporting negative experiences would be expected, rather than those experiencing positive or 'great' service ie: the old mantra of a pax with a negative experience will tell ~10 people, but a passenger experiencing good service generally reports less.Question : POLL - What has been your recent experience with Customer Service surveys?

Every time I have flown QF mainline in recent history, I am sent an online survey to complete. I fill this out honestly, whether good or bad.

I flew in from Singapore on Saturday morning and I had already received the email when I turned my phone on after landing. I always make the an effort to complete the survey and have found in the last six polls the majority of my feedback was positive.

I've gotten a number of inflight surveys on CX and one on JL. Never on QF.

I receive online surveys after almost 50% of my flights - some issues have been dealt with well internally and I have been offered a solution as quickly as the return leg. With other matters (eg., the inconsistent, often chaotic boarding process), there is rarely a response.

Never get the online surveys despite being QFF Platinum for 20+ years. My wife (also platinum QFF) gets one on every flight. Makes a bit of a mockery of the QF customer satisfaction report.

I get these on a fairly regular basis (am Platinum FF) probably about one for every 5 flights (domestic and international) I do. I have asked to be contacted a couple of times in the past when I felt I had a reasonable gripe but heard nil. Still think it is worth supplying the feedback to them.

I receive them each time when I fly both domestic and international QF route

I get them every time and only ever use them to penalise Qantas on Net Promoter Score (NPS) metrics when I miss out on a points upgrade to first while travelling for work.
The way they score execs on these measures is opaque so it's usually safest to go with a 3 when trying to convey negative feedback. Some corporates are sneakily removing outlier scores at the lower end of the range these days, particularly when NPS is tied to remuneration outcomes.
