Delta Air Lines, Inc. Specialist in Atlanta, Georgia

Delta's Reservations Strategy and Customer Experience team is responsible for using data and customer feedback to develop actionable insights and strategies that drive improvement in customer satisfaction, revenue generation and operational efficiency.

This team leads the Reservations Voice of the Customer (VOC) program using customer feedback received through the Delta Pulse survey platform. Through VOC and behavioral data analysis, the team is able to identify key drivers and opportunities to improve the customer experience, make actionable recommendations to Reservations and Delta leadership, and measure the success of division- and company-wide changes. This team also leads the Reservations Speech Analytics program, which provides the ability to analyze calls across the system to understand factors such as call drivers, call handling efficiency, and customer sentiment. This enables improvements such as call deflection to self-service or more suitable contact channels, or increasing customer satisfaction and call efficiency by reducing the need to transfer customers or call a support desk.

The Reservations Strategy and Customer Experience team will leverage data from these programs and other sources to support division-wide strategy on KPIs such as

  • Customer Satisfaction: improving overall customer experience (NPS) and specialist ratings
