I use both extensively for work. My usage pattern is roughly something like this:

Ipad
- read and annotate pdf files (which I can do for several hours every day)
- note taking
- it's my primary device when I go to conferences or seminars, especially when I'm away for a full day. This is because I never have to worry about battery running out or internet access (having a 3G version), and I also like the opportunity to take hand written notes.
- some writing, depending on what I'm doing and where I am
- web surfing and emailing while at home - I usually leave my Air in my office during week days


Air
- this is where I do the majority of my writing, data analysis and project management.

I often find that I use the two devices side by side. For example, I might read and annotate a document on the iPad while taking notes on my Air, or I might be reading data transcripts on my iPad while mind mapping on the Air.

I personally find the 13" very portable, but of course it's a little bit bigger than the iPad. I assume the 11" would be very similar to the iPad, but I wanted the bigger screen and additional battery life of the 13", and I found that for my purposes, the iPad and the 11" would overlap too much.

For me, getting rid of the iPad would be a significant loss, but I think this really comes down to use patterns and the you might find that the Air covers all your needs effectively.

Canon 650D (RebelT4i) and assorted lenses.
MBA 11"

Korg Kaossilator2
Assorted accesories for all of the above.

I find I use the MBA when I have work to do or other more full-on tasks, but the iPad is my main media consumption device on the move and I use it to stream to my AppleTV at home if I haven't put the videos I want into my main PC iTunes library.
