Although Americans plan to travel for leisure a bit more next year than this year, vacationers may have a hard time leaving work behind. In 2011, Americans will travel more often and spend more but will also stay connected with work more than ever, thanks to advances in mobile phones and the Internet, according to a survey of more than 3,000 U.S. travelers. In the survey by the travel website TripAdvisor, nearly 80% of respondents said they planned to spend more or about the same for travel in 2011 than in 2010.

The editorial (Oct. 16) regarding the proposed British Airways/USAir deal told only part of the story. Primary to the objections of Delta, United and American Airlines is the lack of quid pro quo, or equal rights, to compete. The editorial suggests that freedom to fly within the United Kingdom might suffice for a fair deal for the U.S. carriers; however, nothing could be further from reality. The U.S. aviation market comprises fully 40% of the world's air traffic. There is no country in the world that can offer a commensurate value for "open skies," let alone the British.
