Relatively few business travelers check bags on airlines, and fewer still check a second bag and will incur the $25 fee for that added bag that major airlines (American excepted) are slapping on next month.
On the other hand, summer is coming up and lots of leisure travelers, especially those traveling with children, do check extra bags.
Kimpton Hotels has hopped to. Kimpton said today it will give a credit of up to $25 toward the bill to guests who show proof at check-in that they incurred an additional-bag charge. The offer, good at all 43 Kimpton hotels in North America, runs from May 22 through Sept. 9.
