ICG researchers designed a highly empathetic approach to discover how the complex need for control of airline travelers could be satisfied during the very stress-inducing activity of commercial air travel. Through in-depth interviews, ICG unearthed a unique insight that would make the process and experience feel less constricted and rigid for passengers, and would also serve as a rich product development area for United. Offering “choice” is a more appealing way to express the idea of control in the airline category and fulfilled customers need for control so strongly that they would be willing to pay for services that were free in the past. The research insights generated new merchandising product concepts in collaboration with United that would give customers more “control” over their travel experience— such as, choosing your seat, extra legroom, boarding priority, or being able to purchase travel upgrades
