Although they consistently had a remarkable record of being the only carrier in the industry with a 100% on-time record, anonymous customer satisfaction surveys for Kaiser Wilhelm Air described service as being “cold” and “stern”. Further, there were complaints of their practice of shooting down any planes that got in their way as appearing to be “aggressive”.
