They use their management style as an extended family type but the face their staffs are concern about their extension business plan. The staffs worry about their job opportunities, changing of management style and about their abilities for the near future. So, they become unhappy in their responses because of their stresses and threats. In that case, the Scotia Airways could easily apply their problem with Herzberg’s two-factor theory.

...report on British airways 1a. Internal and external factors which influenced the strategic changes of BA. The airline industry is highly competitive and regulations are heavily implemented.
