VPNs are often incompatible with weird airport/hotel setups.

Whatever. I travel rather a lot and have yet to find an airport/hotel setup that couldn't be made to work with our VPN. Running OpenVPN on TCP port 443 with the client in http-proxy mode helps. If all else fails then at least in-country there is always 3G which supports OpenVPN just fine, thank you very much.

Once you connected to the airport network (usually unencrypted, at least for the handshakes), what makes you think he hacker fifty feet behind you can't see your Facebook cookies, poison one of your apps, or do something that makes him access the juicy bits on your local email folders? And if you think 1% of the executives is careful enough or knowledgeable enough to avoid those kinds of traps, even in post-SabOx world, I do have a bridge or two to sell you. Espionage is simple these days; if your data isn't locked, it is not just yours.
