Two comprehensive sets of service failures and service recovery solutions have been developed, which in turn has supported the House of Quality (HoQ) analysis. The proposed methodology has been examined in IranAir as the major airline in Iran. Data had been gathered from designed questionnaires a statistically was analyzed. After computing the matrix in HoQ, The total values of the service recovery solutions have been found and prioritized. Then they have been compared with the priorities from managers' point of view and the differences have been finally highlighted. The outcomes imply that the new methodology has the capability to be specialized for particular airlines, such as IranAir. The difference between the results of the proposed methodology and the managers point of view outlines the fact that the new methodology is much more effective than the traditional approaches, in which the service recovery solutions are prioritized based on managers' point of view. However, some recommendations and suggestions has been presented, by which the applicability and effectiveness of the proposed methodology is expected to increase.
