They want more and more profits at consumer's convenience. All airline tickets must be fully refundable!
Book fully refundable hotel rooms then. If you choose to book a room with a cancellation or no show fee, you are bound by those terms.

Airlines and hotels both offer discount airfares with restrictions on cancellations and changes. If all tickets/rooms had to be fully refundable the prices would be much higher.
