Frontier Airlines now charging for carry-on bags

Posted: Updated:
(WJBK) -- Frontier Airlines says its passengers will now have to pay extra -- anywhere between an extra $20 and $50 -- to place carry-on bags in the overhead bin for advance seat assignments (up to $8).

The move comes as the Denver-based airline tries to transform itself into a fee-dependent airline, similar to Spirit Airlines or Allegiant Air -- the only other U.S. carriers to charge such fees.

Frontier says that in exchange for these new fees, it is lowering its base fare by an average of 12 percent.
