A new ticket-selling technology, called New Distribution Capability (NDC) is poised to disrupt the airline industry. This new approach is made possible by the ability to collect and analyze the unfathomably large amounts of data collected by airlines and will make it possible for airlines to provide every travel shopper a unique, customized price for any given trip.

This approach will be especially helpful for users such as Loretta, who struggle to arrange trips in their old age.Full Article
