With most of my work European travel being on airlines that do not regularly include checked bags I usually specifiy what I want as a matter of course and let the TA work out what fare to book.
I wish it were that simple. All fares are benchamrked in the TA website against the cheapest available fare (often another airline) and the travel policy allows for a certain % difference meaning all fares including a bag (on BA) are out of policy. It stinks really.

I totally agree!
