    Why does the imbalance of power issues in the market of travel products remain unsolved?: In terms of unfairness perception, conflict perception, and conflict solving strategies

    Hwang Hee jeong , Lee, Hoon | 2015, 39(7) | pp.39~52 | number of Cited : 5
    Abstract PDF
    This study analyzed the relation between the unfairness perception of retail travel agency workers(RTAW) and their conflict perception. Also this research examined in what ways the conflict perception of RTAW impacts on their patterns of behavior in terms of the conflict solving strategies. The result shows that the unfairness perception of RTAW correlates with the conflict perception of RTAW. It is also revealed that the conflict perception of RTAW profoundly affects and functions their specific behavior patterns when they choose the conflict solving strategies. The result shows that they, the retail travel agency workers, are likely to evade the conflicts or they adapt themselves to the given settings. Individual efforts, in turn, can hardly contribute to the unfairness that has been deeply embedded in the distribution channels of travel products. Future research works related to this issue are expected to make a detailed suggestion that can contribute to reconstruct the market of travel agencies in terms of fairness issues.

    LEE BO-MI | 2015, 39(7) | pp.53~69 | number of Cited : 18
    This study was to examine the relationships among runner’s motivation, self-efficacy, serious leisure and psychological commitment. The sample consisted of 277 runners who started running 6 months before the survey or had a experience of running a half marathon. Based on the results of the survey, exploratory factor analysis, correlation analysis and hierarchical regression analysis was applied to identify the relative influence of each variable on psychological commitment. Hierarchical regression showed that runner’s motivation, self-efficacy, serious leisure influenced psychological commitment at a different rate. This was because the effects of newly added variables offset against the effects of existing variables. Consequently, runner’s social motivation, satisfaction and gratification had a significant positive effect on psychological commitment. Finally, theoretical and managerial implications of these findings are discussed.

    Impact of Service Quality and Customer Satisfaction on Behavioral Intentions in Bakery Cafe: Testing the moderating role of alternative attractiveness and the Mediating Role of Brand Image

    YUN SUN MI , Chung, Kyoo Yup , Han Hee-Sup | 2015, 39(7) | pp.141~161 | number of Cited : 55
    The criticality of service quality has been repeatedly emphasized in the literature. Particularly, customers’ quality evaluation in bakery cafe is crucial for loyalty enhancement and profit increase. Nevertheless, little research has investigated the role of service quality in forming bakery cafe customers’ behavioral intentions. Filling this gap, this study aimed to examine the relationship between quality dimensions (i.e., tangibles, reliability, responsiveness, assurance, and empathy) and other vital cognitive/affective factors (i.e., brand image and satisfaction) in determining behavioral intentions (i.e., word-of-mouth intention, willingness to pay, and revisit intention). In addition, we attempted to test the moderating impact of alternative attractiveness; and assess the mediating role of study variables within the proposed theoretical framework. A field survey was conducted at bakery cafes. A total of 294 responses were used for data analysis. The collected data was subjected to a series of multiple-regression analysis. The Baron and Kenny’s approach (1986) was employed to test the proposed mediating and moderating impacts. Our results showed that the hypothesized relationships were generally supported, and that brand image and satisfaction acted as a partial/complete mediators in the proposed theoretical framework. In addition, as expected, our findings revealed that alternative attraction played a significant moderating role in generating intentions. This research in general offers valuable insights into developing efficient marketing, service, and operational strategies.

    Kim, Sun-Hee , Il-Sun Yang , JO MI NA | 2015, 39(7) | pp.163~181 | number of Cited : 16
    The purpose of this study was to assess the effects of the emotional intelligence of airline cabin crew on self-efficacy and organizational citizenship behavior. A total of 339 samples were conveniently selected from airline cabin crews of Asiana airline and Korean airline from February 28, 2015 to March 14, 2015. The results were as follows. First, among the sub-dimensions of emotional intelligence, regulation of emotion and use of emotion had a positive effect on self-efficacy. Second, self-efficacy did not have a significant effect on any of the five dimensions of organizational citizenship behavior. Third, others’ emotion appraisal had a positive effect on courtesy, sportsmanship, altruism, civic virtue and conscientiousness dimensions of organizational citizenship behavior. Meanwhile, use of emotion also had a significant effect on conscientiousness, civic virtue and altruism. Regulation of emotion had a significant effect on courtesy, conscientiousness, altruism and civic virtue dimensions except for sportsmanship. Self-emotion appraisal did not have a significant effect on organizational citizenship behaviors. Suggestion of this study is that airline cabin crews’ emotional intelligence is an important antecedent of self-efficacy and organizational citizenship behavior, So there is a need to consider the emotional intelligence to human resources management.
