Frontier Airlines to charge for first checked bag
I took them a while, but Frontier Airlines will now charge for a first checked bag. Customers will have to pay $15 starting for travel on or after November 1st. Customers currently get charged $25 for a second bag.
Passengers flying Frontier Airlines will have to pay $15 for their first checked bag starting Nov. 1 to help the carrier offset skyrocketing fuel costs as it navigates Chapter 11 bankruptcy, the airline announced Friday.
A second bag will cost $25 -- a charge that the airline implemented a couple of months ago, but Frontier's frequent fliers are exempt from both the first and second checked bag fee.
The Denver-based airline has followed the ranks of other carriers that recently have started charging for checked bags fees
EarlyReturns Summit and Ascent members, AirTran Airways A+ Rewards Elite members travelling with Frontier Airlines and active-duty military personnel will all be exempt from charges for both first and second checked bags.
United Airlines also just announced they will double their current second-checked bag fee.
