Detection of service failures is prevalent in various service sectors, including the aviation industry. Given the crucial role of frontline employees in addressing customer complaints, this study seeks to investigate the effective engagement of frontline employees in service recovery performance and the factors influencing it. The study gathered data from 371 employees in the aviation sector. The findings indicated a positive correlation between transformational leadership and service recovery performance. Additionally, employee resilience was identified as a mediator in the relationship between transformational leadership and service recovery performance. However, no evidence was found to support the notion that workplace spirituality acts as a mediator in this relationship. The paper concludes with discussions on both theoretical and practical
implications of the study's results.
