The United States government should restrict employees from checking bags on airline flights. For practicality purposes, the restriction could be placed on business travel lasting less than 4 days. As a goodwill gesture, employees that travel extensively with their jobs could be given a "carry-on" sized suit case. This one-time expense would be repaid with the baggage fee savings on just one round trip flight. Afterward, the government would stand to save at least $50 per round trip flight per employee.
