Activity #2: Fair Skies Focus (100 points)
This Activity is comprised of four (4) parts.  Your Activity responses should be both grammatically and mechanically correct, and formatted in the same fashion as the Activity itself.  If there is a Part A, your response should identify a Part A, etc.  In addition, you must appropriately cite all resources used in your response and document in a bibliography using APA style.  (100 points)  (A 4-page response is required for the combination of Parts A, B, C, and D.)
Think of yourself as the marketing director for Fair Skies Airlines, which provides consumers with a product and service that is well accepted and used by millions of people each year in the United States.  Several innovations are about to be incorporated into the product that will change some of its features and modify the benefits customers enjoy.  These have already been decided; in fact, they are almost fait accompli.
In essence, this full-service airline is about to undergo a complete transition into a new low-fare carrier with meager accommodations and no advance seat-selection.  It will charge passengers for everything extra, from coffee and soft drinks to sandwiches and even temporary use of pillows and blankets.  Passengers will have to check their own baggage, but ticketing and check-in will be more automated.  Fares will be exceptionally low, and there should be less wait time at check-in counters.  Belatedly, upper management has asked you to obtain some feedback on this new orientation.
Part A
Using the Ashworth College Library, research the   following information. You must provide an APA-formatted bibliography   identifying all the sources you use.  (15 points)
Research at least three (3) discount airlines   describing the different services they provide as options for their   customers.
Consult at least two (2) airline industry   journals and/or publications from specific airlines and provide a brief   summary describing what a “discount” fare really means.
Part B
Your boss has asked you to validate the claim   that the new concept will be a success.  In order to do so, you need to   conduct a SWOT analysis.  Your boss has asked you to include a   competitive component in the analysis. Your SWOT analysis must include at least   three (3) internal strengths and three (3) internal weaknesses, as well as   three (3) external opportunities and three (3) external threats.  The   competitive component must include mention of at least two (2) competitors in   relationship to the opportunities and at least two (2) competitors in   relationship to the threats you have identified.  (36 points)
Part C
Your boss has asked that you interview people   about the upcoming changes.  Create a list stating the type of subjects   you should interview.  Upper management favors sampling loyal Fair Skies   passengers who have flown at least three round-trips, but feel free to   propose others you think should be interviewed. Name at least three (3)   subjects to interview.  (29 points)
After creating the list above, you decide to use   a focus group format.
List and discuss two (2) considerations that you   think will be important in leading the focus group.
Compose at least 10 questions you think would be   necessary for adequate input and which address the two (2) or more   considerations you have identified.
Part D
Write a memo to your boss and associates   explaining the following. Remember that most people rarely read memos more   than two pages long, so keep it short and to the point.  Don’t forget to   cite your sources, however.  Your list of sources and any pertinent   charts, tables, and reference materials can be added to the memo as   appendices.  The results will provide guidance for marketing planning   that may insure the survival of Fair Skies while other airlines are   floundering during these difficult times.  (20 points)
Explain the method and rationale you used for   conducting this type of research.
Explain how you would use input from the SWOT analysis.
Explain how you would use the proposed   questions.
Make at least two (2) recommendations for   management based on what you have learned

Frequently asked questions

How soon can I get my paper done?

It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.

Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.

We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.

Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?

All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.

What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?

Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!

Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?

We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.

I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?

Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.

I got my order information wrong, can I change that?

Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email ( or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.

Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?

Yes you can. Email Anna at, she’s in charge of our sales team. Alternatively, you can talk to our Live Chat team here and request to speak to Anna.
