American handled my canceled flight in such a way that they completely restored my confidence and earned my loyalty.

Everybody thinks to train employees on the company’s products/services and to give them basic phone skills. But very few people in customer service actually get the training they need to handle problems in such a way that they immediately restore customer confidence.
