When Experiences Go Badly: the Buffering Effect of Scheduling on Dissatisfaction

Six studies demonstrate that consumers expect to be more satisfied with scheduled (vs. impromptu) experiences, and this higher anchor leads to greater satisfaction and positive word of mouth when something goes poorly within an experience.
