I think its great that men are being more conscious about their appearance and general cleanliness. I just hope it does not create more vanity and narcissism. Claire, Los Angeles, California

To say that metrosexual travel is on the rise is redundant. Metrosexuals in general are those who have travelled the world, seen different cultures and appreciate the finer things in life. I question whether there is such a thing as a metrosexual who is not well travelled. Darren H. Curacao

If you mean by "metrosexual" you also mean "fussy and difficult", then, unfortunately, yes. I have been stuck beside these types on one too many long flights. John Masten, Washington D.C.

The best thing about business travel has to be meeting people from around the world. The worst thing is undoubtedly the airlines, which see determined to alienate customers with their small seats and bizarre prices. Don Winterhalter, Plaistow, New Hampshire

A distinction between traveler, business traveler, and vacationer must be made in the discussion of metrosexuality. Travelers do not go on trips for one week at a time like vacationers typically do and do not usually visit places for business purposes. Travelers are gone for months and even years at a time. Unlike metrosexuals, who are concerned with fashion, food and grooming, travelers are concerned with staying warm(cool) and dry, eating, and the occasional opportunity to shower and wash clothes. Thus, it may be true that the metrosexual business traveler and the metrosexual vacationer is on the rise, metrosexual travelers are not. Justin, Washington D.C.

Metrosexual males are soon to be on the decline, if not already there. There is a huge trend towards the re-masculinization in America, since the metrosexual movement took that away. Bigger more masculine men with facial hair are on the rise. Lloyd Taylor, San Francisco, California

The metrosexual traveler travels everywhere with ease and splendour! As a young professional woman, it is nice to be in such fine company when I travel, the elegance of flying is back! Cynthia Carrasco, Glendora, California
