Here is the sale page and restrictions. I see $29 fares between:

  • Atlanta and Cleveland
  • Atlanta and Washington-Dulles
  • Charlotte and Tampa
  • Cincinnati and Atlanta
  • Cincinnati and Dallas/Fort Worth
  • Indianapolis and Atlanta
  • Philadelphia and Charlotte
  • Washington-Dulles and Cincinnati

There are also many $39, $49, and higher fares, sorted by city.

I had no trouble pricing out Charlotte to Philadelphia for $27.50 next week. That’s quite a swipe at US Airways (American Airlines.)

Frontier now follows the ultra-low-cost, fee-for-everything model.

Seat selection costs $4+. They’ll assign you a seat at check in for free, but you’ll probably get the worst one.

Only a personal item is free to bring on board. Checked bags cost $20+ and carry ons cost $30+, so I would think of these fares as costing $20 more each way and plan on checking a bag.

Even water costs money. Here’s the snack and drink menu.
