Frontier $39 and Up Sale
Link: Frontier $39 and Up Sale
You can buy flights on Frontier Airlines from $39 including tax 1-way now until 11:59 pm Eastern Time on October 23, 2014, for travel between October 28, 2014, through December 17, 2014.
Fares start at $39 including taxes 1-way. But most fares are higher.
You have to fly non-stop flights on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. And you can’t fly on November 25, 2014, to November 26, 2014.
But Is It Worth it?
You might pay less for your ticket, but Frontier charges fees for:
- $15 to $25 1st checked bag fee ($15 for Frontier Discount Den members, $20 online, $25 at the airport)
- $30 2nd checked bag fee
- $3 to $15 seat assignment fee
- $50 transfer fee
- $75 change fee (plus fare increase)
- $25 for a carry-on bag at time of purchase
For folks who don’t check bags, don’t care where they sit, or won’t be changing their flights, this could be a good deal. But you should do what makes sense for you.
Emily and I are passing on this sale because we have the Southwest Companion Pass and often check bags.
