American Airlines: Don’t Tip Our Skycaps in Boston

American Airlines recently lost a lawsuit filed by skycaps in Boston who claimed they had lost wages because of American’s $2-per-bag charge for curbside check-in.  American’s subcontractor for skycaps then raised hourly rates for skycaps to about $12-14/hr, from the $5.15 per hour they used to receive (along with a hefty set of tips).

In response, the airline has forbidden skycaps in Boston for accepting tips from customers.  Seems a bit petty, no?
