I agree with you - am informed consumer is a joy for a client. However, I am was referring to those that really have no idea of what they want or want multiply changes to their bookings and need a lot of hand holding. As a TA works with them, I would hope the TA is explaining and helping them learn their way.

I wasn't referring to just an order taker.
