Carry on baggage fees and third party ticket penalties.
Frontier is not a business friendly airline I was charged $50.00 to carry on my computer bag because I did not purchase my ticket directly through Frontier. This is a rip off I will never travel this airline ever again. To me frontier is a bait and switch airline, they list their prices cheap on third-party websites but then Snag you with fees once you get to the airport. Even if I see their prices $200 cheaper I will never fly them again it's more the principal.

right from Frontier Airlines website. Also, they fares booked via 3rd party websites, are only basic fares which are more fee heavy:

Well, what most business travelers do is list these sorts of expenses on their expense report. The expense is then reimbursed by the company. In other words, if your company booked you on Frontier and you encountered an incidental expense, why would you care?

Wow, really. I would hope all employees do not have the same thoughts as yours. Our employees realize every dollar saved is a dollar earned.

So, you care about earning a penny but you don't care about costing your company an extra $200? Next time you should get a business degree that doesn't come with a red nose and big floppy shoes.
