Frontier Airlines is roughly two years into its new model as an ultra low cost airline. Once an airline with the most perks for passengers - it was one of the earliest adopters of onboard TV - it now has among the least.
Frontier now will charge you for everything from a can of Coke to your carry-on bag. You'll also get some of the least legroom in the industry. Of course, the value proposition is different than it was. Frontier's base fare is cheaper than other airlines on just about every route. Even when you include the fees, it can save you a lot of money.
I'm headed to Frontier headquarters in Denver on Tuesday (September 29) to get a progress report on the new strategy. I'll be meeting with several top executives, including the airline's chairman and its president.
While I might tease some of what I learn here, I'll be saving best material for Aviation Week. Look for a story by me in that magazine next month.
What do you think I should ask Frontier executives? What would you like to know?
Also, have you flown Frontier recently? How was it?
