* When it comes to travel, women feel the industry treats them strictly second-class, according to a survey released this week. A poll of 650 women by the travel magazine Endless Vacation found that most women believe they receive inferior service to men when on the road and even pay higher prices in some cases. The survey found that 69% of those polled believe the travel industry treats men better than women. In addition, 35% said they attribute negative experiences they have had while traveling to being female.

Eight Ziosks made by Ziosk Inc. of St. Petersburg, Fla., are scattered throughout the terminal, each equipped with a sofa, worktable, credit card phone, fax machine, television and clock radio.
