Cheers.
Stores also do it in a back door kind of way by selling non refundable gift cards at a discount. They have your cash and you need to spend the gift card with them.

Frontier flies nonstop from IAD to MCO on select days.

For me recent trip we flew Frontier down and Spirit up. Decent prices out of Bradley if you can play their games. I don't think we need laws outlawing this type of airline pricing, but we should mandate a standard pricing presentation so people can comparison shop.

Iíd like to see mandatory resort fees banned. If itís not optional it should be added to price for transparency. Iíve seen them as high as $49/night in Hawaii and that doesnít include parking!

Plus, it starts to take away from areas that different airlines can offer a competitive advantage. Like Spirit is really cheap if you just want to sit on the airplane somewhere & Southwest lets you check 2 bags included in your fare.

We shouldn't have laws that stymie or prohibit creativity, differentiation, and / or innovation. As long as everyone knows the potential fees when purchasing, each consumer is able to make a decision based on cost vs. value received.

It's usually early fall and I have already made some spec reservations to try and go for a couple nights at a time for next fall.

Same here, but from SoCal it takes too long to get there and back to make a deal like that work.
