Skift Take

Poor choice by corporate travel managers. An unhappy employee will likely cost a company much more than the $8.50 you didn't reimburse him for that sandwich on his last trip.

Many business travelers say they aren’t being reimbursed for airline fees, even for checked bags #travel

Fewer companies are willing to pay extra fees airlines keep tacking on, leaving employees to not check bags or order in-flight food, or to pay for the services themselves.

A report released today by travel and expense management company GetThere says 78% of corporate travel managers who answered a GetThere survey said their companies reimbursed for a first checked bag last year, down from 95% in 2010.
