DOHA, Qatar – Qatar Airways’ Customer Experience team announced the rebranding of its cabin crew recognition programme, Kafou – which means “job well done” – and the addition of colleague feedback to help recognise superior service as it happens on board Qatar Airways flights. Kafou combines feedback from multiple sources and consolidates the data into a single system for easier processing, faster recognition of stellar cabin crew, and integration into the cabin crew performance system.
Kafou elevates the former recognition programme for the benefit of Qatar Airways’ 10,000 cabin crew, with faster feedback loops and the ability for the Customer Experience leadership team to provide kudos and share customer – and now, colleague – feedback.
Customers can provide feedback via our “Tell Us” web form on the Qatar Airways website: http://www.qatarairways.com/qa/en/tell-us.page. Feedback is factored in to the cabin crew member’s review of overall guest experience delivery and is taken into consideration for their annual performance review and career progression path.
Qatar Airways Senior Vice President Customer Experience, Mr. Rossen Dimitrov, said: “We encourage our crew members on board to constantly challenge themselves to deliver customer experience that is personalised, purposeful, and pleasant. Qatar Airways is extremely proud of the men and women who serve as our brand ambassadors on board, and their commitment to excellence, and as such, we wanted to extend upon our existing feedback programme, so that all of us – fellow colleagues and our loyal passengers – can take part in congratulating cabin crew for a job well done.”
The programme relaunch was celebrated yesterday at an official ceremony in Doha, recognising cabin crew who best demonstrate the values that have helped make Qatar Airways on board service world-class. Jonathan Michelsen, Elbert Hernandez, Hiba Rqfiq, Clarence Virtudazo and Nathanael Hovee were recognised for Safety First; Ambassadors of the Brand; Business Awareness; and Leadership.
The cabin crew community at Qatar Airways is highly diverse, comprised of over 120 nationalities, speaking more than 160 languages. Qatar Airways cabin crew have consistently ranked as one of the world’s best cabin crews, including being awarded Best Airline Staff Service in the Middle East three times.
