False Ad? Frontier Airlines Fly For A Buck Sale Charged More, Now Offering $5 Off, Things You Need To Know
Frontier Airlines has launched a “Fly for a Buck Sale.” They offer $1-flights. However, there are things fliers are not aware of. Find out what.
The price of a single airline ticket is actually more than a dollar. During the limited time sale, Frontier Airlines was actually selling flights for $15. This special rate was offered to flights from Philadelphia, Denver, Chicago, Cleveland, Atlanta, Washington D.C. and Trenton.
While the airline ticket is priced $15, passengers may have been surprised to discover that they still needed to pay extra in order to bring a carry-on bag, checked bag or get a seat assignment, as found by the Tribune Media Wire.
In case you missed the $15 seat sale, don’t despair. Frontier is now offering “The Big Sale” with as much as 100,000 seats starting at $25. You actually get a discount of $5 soon as you enter the promo code “5OFF” upon booking. What is odd though, is that the online deal prices on display actually start at $29. So that if your fare is discounted by $5, you would expect it to be $24, not $25.
Meanwhile, booking a flight from Atlanta to Austin using the “Book Now” link on the promo page reveals that there are actually flights being offered for $40, instead of the published $49 rate. And when you add the promo code, the $40 rate goes down to $35. While this is a good discount, it also proves to be confusing as the discounted rates are actually offered after the travel period stated in the promo page.
In fact, you can book a flight from Atlanta to Austin for $49 only during September 10. Meanwhile, the highest you will end up paying during the promo travel period is actually $179. And in case you’re wondering, the “5OFF” did not discount the fares stated in the promo travel period.
While there may be some confusion when it comes to the rates, one thing remains certain. It is possible to get discounted airfares on Frontier Airlines right now. Just remember that it may be cheaper to fly after the promo travel period. And also, the promo travel period actually varies per departing city and destination.
