What all crises share in common: they catch brands unaware
It’s often said that an airline or airport can never be fully prepared to deal with a crisis. When SimpliFlying advises its clients, we advocate for learning from others and being mentally prepared to ascertain similar crises – especially in this age of social media where information and opinion spread more rapidly than ever before, for better or for worse.
