A Whole New Way to Buy and Fly on Frontier Airlines
Griz and the gang are back. Those of us who enjoy Frontier Airline’spromotional campaign have missed the ads featuring the animals on the airline’s tails. Not understanding the new “AirFairs” Grizwald the Bear is currently on a rant while his pals sit back and smirk.
In mid-December Frontier announced a new three-tier fare structure. The guaranteed lowest fare, Economy, is the basic ticket, no perks. If you’re traveling light, don’t expect schedule changes or need to economize this is your best option.
For as little as $20 more fliers can choose the Classic which offers advanced seat assignment, two complimentary checked bags, in-flight DIRECTV® and 125% EarlyReturns® mileage credit. If you require an itinerary change the fee is $50 with Classic tickets. For most passengers this is a real bargain.
Classic Plus offers the least restrictions and most perks. Fully refundable and changable this fare gives customers priority boarding, two checked bags, complimentary DIRECTV®, an in-flight snack and a premium beverage. In addition EarlyReturns® members receive a 150% mileage credit.
When booking a flight to Florida today I found Classic Plus fares to be about $50 higher than Classic. However, that could still be a major savings if you’re likely to need to change flights or cancel.
“Our customers have spoken and we listened,” said Sean Menke, Frontier President and CEO. “AirFairs brings choice and fairness back to the travel experience. The customer is now the driver of their individual travel experience. Our three fare levels give our customers the flexibility they have told us they want to arrange their travel to fit their specific budget and comfort needs.”
I like having my expenses paid up-front. With Classic ticket in hand I’m off to Florida later this month, flying Frontier.
