Default Why are hotel loyalty programs more restrictive than airlines’?

Hi all. Was just wondering if anyone with expertise in the matter could enlighten me on why hotel loyalty programs are more restrictive than airlines’ in many ways. I especially try to find out why when you book an airline ticket through a third party, you still get status Miles accrual while hotels require you to book directly from their channels in order to get points. What’s the main difference? Anything cost related? Thanks!

Commissions to agencies - airlines typically pay 5-8% while hotels can pay up to 20-30%.
