A couple weeks or so later he was surprised to receive a special delivery package in the mail. Lo and behold upon opening it up he saw that it was from the president of the airline. In contrast to his own letter full of contempt and anger, this letter from the airline president was just dripping with apology. He informed the passenger that the particular plane on which he had flown had been taken out of service. He told him it had been stripped and treated for bugs. He also told him that the flight attendant would most certainly be reprimanded, possibly up to and including termination from employment.

He pulled it apart and his attention was drawn to the unfamiliar scrawl of the airline president who had written these words to his secretary; "Send this guy the standard ’roach’ letter".
Here was a man that wanted some answers. Perhaps that airline president had the right intention in mind, and had this gross mistake not occurred, the passenger may have indeed believed that the airline was taking some serious steps to correct the problems he addressed in his letter. If the passenger had not found out through happenstance that the letter was nothing more than a perfunctory response, probably a standard form letter sent out in response to all similar complaints, the passenger would probably have thought that this was indeed an airline that was genuinely concerned about customer service and customer satisfaction, and wanted to answer his concerns sincerely and earnestly and had that been the case, he probably would have continued to give them his business.
