Sometimes I have extra hotel pens.

Sometimes I don't, because the passengers on the last flight took them all.

I'm required to keep one on my person at all times so you're not getting that one, sorry.

It could be weight, it could be cost.

I know UAL used to have them in the amenity kits for BusinessFirst, and even a mini pen into the first round of "Polaris" kits. I don't think I've seen them in awhile, though.
