WiFi safety question -- what's safe to look at?

I'm in an airport on an AT&T Wireless wifi connection. How safe is it to A) check POP email (that doesn't likely include too much sensitive info) B) shop online at trusted sites (e.g. Amazon, Banana Republic etc.) C) do online banking, check credit card statements, etc.?

My hunch is that with a reputable provider such as AT&T or T-Mobile, I'm probably just as secure as I would be on DSL at home, but I just wanted to be sure.
