Starting Monday, Frontier began to charge passengers from $20 to $50 to carry on a bag and $3 to $15 to preselect a seat. In the past, Frontier waived both fees for economy fliers who booked through Flyfrontier.com. Now, all economy fliers pay the fee.

For more than a year, Frontier has been moving toward the business honed by Spirit Airlines and Allegiant Airlines, both of which charge for carry-on bags and dozens of other services. A list of the nearly 30 fee categories at Frontier — including a $5 fee to print out a paper receipt and $10 to make a reservation over the phone — can be found here.
