On a flight from Delhi to Bangkok a young woman behind me threw up and it landed on my shoulders. Even though I cleaned up with the towels and water the hostesses provided I had to endure a stinking shirt for two hours. Ever since then I have always packed an extra change of clothing in my carry-on luggage. Luckily such an incident has never happened since then. Pradeep, Rancho Cucamonga, California

Flying every two weeks on business on the same flight I have noticed that when I wear a nice suit I am double searched. When I wear overalls, do not shave and look like a crazed artist they leave me alone. While in my suit my long hair was neatly tied back and I held a briefcase -- my baggage was searched and tagged. They broke several pieces of art I was transporting and then put it back in my luggage and tagged it. I realize the need for safety at U.S. airports but I certainly do not fit a profile of a terrorist. Chris Drake, Washington

When I travel I prefer to buy gifts of small value to be distributed as souvenirs to my friends and family when I get home. Especially for my three grandsons aged two to five years. Prem Kumar, New Delhi, India

During a trip to Australia this past September, I purchased a brightly colored, hand painted aboriginal "rain sticks" -- a hollow tube that when turned upside down, makes a sound like a downpour on a rainy day. We use them for musical accompaniment. Clover, New York

To cut down on fuel costs passengers should pay per for their weight. Anne Weltner, Atlanta, Georgia

I have recently flown from Switzerland to Los Angeles and was amazed by Swiss Air's seat size and the seatback televisions with interactive menus. The menus allowed us to control which movies and shows we wanted to watch, or which music we wished to listen to. I believe that made the difference during the 12-hour flight. I also believe, that is what saved me from being disgruntled. If U.S. airlines at home could come up with this solution for the mass population, and not just certain airlines at certain airports, going to certain cities, many people would be less disgruntled. Kristina, Temple City, California

The last business traveller television programme was really useful at least for my friends and me. We are studying hotel management and the appearance of this industry counts a lot. Murilo, Sierre, Switzerland

If people feel security at airports inconveniences them, then they should walk or drive. I worked on airport upgrades after Sept. 11, 2001 and even I was searched on almost every flight because of the short notice airlines were given to implement security. Jon Butler, Merceed California

The business traveller television program is excellent. It is not to be missed. Sai Lakshmi, Brussels
