Former Frontier CEO on airlines banning alcohol on flights
Former Frontier Airlines CEO and Manifest CEO Jeff Potter weighs in on the decision by some airlines to suspend alcohol sales on flights after an increase in violent behavior from passengers.
Frontier Airlines said Wednesday it will cancel a fee it recently began charging customers in an effort to "offset added costs" related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
"Frontier Airlines has made the decision to rescind its Covid Recovery Charge of $1.59 per passenger per segment that was implemented in May," a Frontier spokesperson told FOX Business in a statement.

The charge was included in the airline’s total promoted fare versus an add-on fee and "was meant to provide transparency and delineate what portion of the fare was going toward Covid-related business recovery," the spokesperson added. "However, to avoid misinterpretation, the airline will discontinue the practice of breaking out this category within its overall promoted fares."

Frontier's website said some of the measures the charge was intended to offset include "increased sanitation and cleaning onboard the aircraft and in the airport, shields at the ticket counters and gate areas, and personal protective equipment for employees."
