    No one at US DOT can even bring themselves to update the now 3 and a half year old advisory “How to Get the Best Airfare.” Back in the competitive pre algorithmic slaughterhouse days, it suggested such things as asking reservation agents about lower fare options and, yes, senior discounts. No longer a need for a whole lot of advice, now; “if you need to fly you are screwed suffices.”
