Abstract

This study aimed to establish a fair service recovery model based on customer perception on the Indonesian domestic airline industry under force majeure conditions. The study tried to investigate the influence of perceived service recovery justice on service recovery satisfaction (SRS), repeat purchase, and word of mouth (WOM). A sample of 300 aircraft passengers was selected using a survey. The response rate was 84.33%. Regression analysis was employed to verify the hypotheses. Based on the empirical research, it was found that perceived service recovery justice (distributive, procedural, and interactional justice) positively influenced SRS. Furthermore, the mean values of all three perceived justice variables were lower. Thus, it can be confirmed that double deviation occurred. The study also found that satisfied consumers tend to make repeat purchases and spread positive WOM. Consumers who experience dissatisfaction spread negative WOM but still make a repeat purchase. This indicates that even though customers experienced double deviation of service failures, they are still loyal to the company.
