Travel is one area of Web commerce that continues to expand, with more than $12.2 billion in online bookings last year. In June United, American, Delta, Northwest and Continental airlines plan to launch Orbitz, a Web-based flight-booking company. If approved, it could ground many of the shakier travel booking sites.
