Tipping SkyCaps--it's the law! (OK, it's not, but it should be!)

Jump to last reply

Disclaimer: I am not a SkyCap, nor is anyone in my family a SkyCap.
I just returned from sending off my SO at the airport, and am just appalled that so many travelers seem not to know that the SkyCaps who run the curbside check-in counters are not airline employees, and they WORK FOR TIPS! Sorry for shouting, but I watched young and old stiff the poor guy; finally, I said "You guys need to put up a sign!", and he had the very good grace to laugh it off, saying "yeah, maybe we should."
Waht gives with this cheapskate behavior? Do folks really not know to tip SkyCaps? I would assume Fodorites are in the know, but is there any way to get the word out? I hate to see a working guy get robbed, especially when, like the one I saw today, he's giving really courteous, professional service.
