Should airline fares change every second?

The fares for trains, buses, taxis don't change every second. So, why do fares for airlines have to change every second? I understand when the demand is higher people are willing to pay more. But in that case why don't the price of goods like clothes, change every second then? And if it is about change in oil price then why don't the price of buses and taxis change?

I think lives of consumers would be lot simpler if they did not have to worry about the change in price and fly with peace of mind that everyone paid the same price for the same service. If you were travelling by train or bus then you would not have to bother booking months in advance. You would just go to the train station, purchase the ticket and travel. See how convenient. Why can't we have similar experience when it comes to airlines?
