The sale is valid for bookings made by 11:59 PM ET on May 29 for domestic, nonstop travel mostly on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays between June 2 and August 12.

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

  • Atlanta and Cincinnati
  • Atlanta and Indianapolis
  • Cincinnati and Washington-Dulles

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

I had no trouble pricing out Atlanta to Indianapolis for $29 this summer.

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.

Getting These Flights for Free

There’s no need to actually pay cash for cheap, cash fares. The Citi Prestige® Card comes with a $250 Air Travel Credit every calendar year that will cover the purchase of this ticket. If you haven’t used the credit yet, buy this fare with your Prestige, and you will receive an offsetting credit on your next statement, so you’ll get a completely free ticket. The Air Travel Credit will also offset seat selection, baggage, and food fees.
