As usual, it's worth remembering that Frontier is a budget airline. If you're flying with a full-sized roll-aboard filled with presents, your total bill will be more than $38.40. Frontier, which has a less than impressive on-time arrival rate, charges for all luggage and the selection of most seats. A handful of seats on each flight are often free, but the vast majority must be paid for unless you're willing to have your seat assigned at the airport. That's free. Your bill can start to get inflated quickly, so look into what the full cost will be before booking.
Nonetheless, the flight can still be cheap, especially if you're just taking a quick jaunt out of town for the weekend and can pack like a champ.
