Get ready to fork over $50 for carry-on bags on Frontier

Although Spirit has the rudest flight attendants and charges outrageous fees for carry-on bags, it's not alone in penalizing your luggage. Frontier Airlines has announced new baggage fees that could cost up to $75 for the schlubs flying economy.

Frontier provides a labyrinthine chart to help confuse consumers about carry-on fees, as listed on its website:

The good(ish) news: members of Frontier's Discount Den will pay only $20 for carry-ons purchased online. Every other living soul pays $25, and the closer to departure the bag is purchased, the more the price rises -- all the way up to $50 for any bag checked at the gate for not fitting the specified carry-on dimensions.

Here's to low cost airlines!
