    Digital profiteers no longer hide in the shady corners of the Internet — they occupy major airlines and extort unsuspecting travelers by blocking competitive seats. They swoop in with millions of automated attacks that constantly reserve the most affordable seats on popular flights and force people to purchase more expensive airfares. This monopolizes the supply of tickets, while driving their demand to an astronomical profit. These attacks use payment redirections, like PayPal, and reserve seats indefinitely without ever needing to finalize the transaction. In a matter of seconds, every affordable fare can be tied up in a ghost queue, preventing legitimate paying customers from being able to see, and book, these seats. And while all of this may sound extraordinary, it's anything but uncommon in the ticketing industry — where rampant automation is big business for the criminals profiting at your expense. So how does this affect the wider ticketing industry? Well, now that sales are forcibly risked on the gamble of selling more profitable tickets, companies have a disincentive to stop automated ticket scalping. This has driven ticketers to knowingly secure their sale by allowing bots to purchase them, which offloads the risk to attackers at a hefty price tag to you.
