The introductory price offer ends tonight.

I looked at it but don't plan on getting one. The part about booking one day ahead of time seems like a hassle, not so much on going somewhere ( my schedule is flexible ), but on GETTING BACK.

And besides, Frontier prices are already pretty low, and well, it is Frontier. And you will still pay taxes/fees/charges, which can be ~ 30 % of the overall ticket cost.

Some of the Fine-print:

Search & Book on FlyFrontier.com the day before flight departure for domestic travel and starting 10 days before flight departure for international travel.

Your pass will be valid for one year beginning May 2, 2023.

For each flight, you'll pay $0.01 in airfare plus applicable taxes, fees, and charges at the time of booking.

When you book, you can also purchase options like bags, seats, and other ancillary products for each flight to customize your travel.

I have flown Frontier many times and rate them with the other low cost airlines. I agree, the booking one day in advance is too big of a hurdle for me. I will pass. I wish I would have jumped on the American Airlines pay one price and fly for free first class for lifetime. The restrictions on that one were not very prohibitive although the price was steep.

In the early 1980s, Air Florida offered a super deal on multiple-round trips. I think it was around $1500 for twenty trips. They were trying to raise cash and had just had a horrendous crash so conventional wisdom was they would go bankrupt and cease operations. The thing was, these passes were fully guaranteed. If Air Florida ceased operations, we were entitled to a full discount. I think I did about a dozen RTs before they shut down. About a year later, I got a check for $500 and a note that the rest was tied up in litigation. I never thought I'd get any more, but about five years later, I got a check for $994. I don't know why they refunded $1494 of the $1500, but I was pretty happy when the second check arrived. My numbers may be a bit off, but I got many free trips and eventually got a full refund minus six dollars.
The difference between fiction and reality is that fiction is supposed to make sense.
