Customer Familiarity and its Effects on Satisfaction and Dissatisfaction

Magnus Söderlund () and Jonas Gunnarsson

Abstract: The main finding in this paper is that customer familiarity (i.e. the number of product-related experiences accumulated by the customer) affects customer satisfaction in an asymmetric way. Data from customers in the airline industry suggest that it is more difficult to obtain a high level of satisfaction among high familiarity customers compared to low familiarity customers, given a high performance level. On the other hand, given a low performance level, high familiarity and low familiarity customers do not seem to be subject to different levels of dissatisfaction.
