I Revenge For Others I Do Not Know: the Role of Intercultural Competence in Moderating Customer Revenge to Service Failure Occurred to Adjacent Customer

We examine the service failure from the observers’ perspective and how it influences their patronage and revenge intentions. Results from a 2x2 experiment revealed observer’s interpretation of service failure was largely influenced by their intercultural competence. They are more sensitive to discrimination and courageous to retaliate with higher intercultural intelligence.
