In all my years of flying, I have never flown on Frontier Airlines…until now. Sometimes a cheap fare is simply far too cheap to resist.
Cheap Ticket On Frontier Airlines: I’m Flying To Milwaukee
After my tree problem my annual autumn trip to Green Lake, Wisconsin got pushed. While I did consider skipping it this year (for the first time in 12 years), an opening came up and I figured it was the perfect opportunity to go. Thanksgiving is around the corner, then December will be a very busy month…it was now or never.
Time is the currency of love and taking a couple of days to visit dear friends is all the more important to me during a time of great uncertainty in so many areas of life.
I don’t know if you’ve checked lately, but domestic airfare is pretty pricey these days. United wanted $425 each way to go from LA to Chicago or Milwaukee, which was particularly difficult to stomach considering I’ve already surpassed the spending requirement for 1K status (no rollover at United).
But Frontier Airlines was only $63 from Ontario (ONT) to Milwaukee (MKE) via Denver (DEN). Not bad, especially because I will be traveling light.
So I booked it.
Then I booked United back via the same routing…at nearly seven times the price (Frontier wasn’t as cheap going back and I figured that one-way may be one-way too much).
I have very low expectations for Frontier Airlines going into this, but I also know that you get what you pay for so if I can get there safely and on time, I’ll be a happy camper.
Any tips for flying Frontier? How closely will my personal item be measured?
