Default No baggage charge for business travelers - others must pay

An airline at my local airport just started offering a daily flight to
Reagan National airport
in Washington DC, their radio ads are saying no baggage charge for
business travelers.

Is this a common practice with airlines to have two classes for
baggage charges?

Business travelers, or business class tickets?

Well, what airline?

Given that, it should be simple to figure out.

Sounds like business class. That would be common.

Why not? You pay more for your ticket, you get more.

Business travelers don't pay more, but business class ticket holders do.
While there might be a bit of a likelihood of one group matching up with
the other, it's not a 1:1 relationship.
