  • TSA acknowledges security lapses at Honolulu airport
    The Department of Homeland Security reported that Transportation Security Administration officials did not properly screen bags at Honolulu airport between September and December 2010. TSA Administrator John Pistole said there have been "widespread and frequent failures" because 40 officers and supervisors admitted they violated rules, sometimes not screening bags at all on overseas flights. The report also says that TSA claims Honolulu is the only location where infractions occurred.

  • Corporate travel will fall 2% this year, GBTA says

The trade group forecasts that corporate travel volume this year will decline 2% from 2011 levels. Travel spending is expected to rise 2.6% from 2011 but only because of rising travel costs. "Corporations are in a wait-and-see mode and holding back on investment decisions that would help boost the economy," said Michael W. McCormick, chief operating officer of the association.
