He is a very important guest for the hotel and hotel staff is always on their toes to keep his happy. His secretary calls up at 11am to amend the flight details for the next day’s pick up in a Mercedes Benz. Mr. Lane’s fight was supposed to reach at 8am but due to change in his plans, he is now arriving by an earlier flight at 5am the front desk agent takes the arrival information and passes it on only to the concierge, who is entangled in peak time check-in and answering guest queries. By the time he sort out these, he is exhausted and confirm Mr. Lane’s pick up for the next day at 8am instead of 5am.

Mr. Lane arrives in the hotel at 7am in a taxi and his preferred suit is not ready (housekeeping was not aware of his arrival). He is absolutely furious and icily gives the duty manager a piece of his mind.

  3. Will Mr. Lane continues to stay at the hotel lake view henceforth? Why or why not?
