    “The travel industry has been forcing customers to book and manage travel online in the same way for the past 20 years,” said Travelaer co-founder and CEO Mike Slone. “The big travel tech companies, which are focused more on transactions than customer experience, require airlines to adopt technology that leads their customers into unfortunate and unnecessarily bad digital experiences.
