Well that changed quickly!
Frontier Airlines is dropping plans to charge passengers extra to sit next to an empty middle seat after congressional Democrats accused the airline of trying to profit from fear over the novel coronavirus.
Frontier CEO Barry Biffle said, “We recognize the concerns raised that we are profiting from safety and this was never our intent. We simply wanted to provide our customers with an option for more space.”
Frontier would block the seats from being sold. Making sure you had distancing between you and another passenger. The offer was to begin with flights Friday and run through Aug. 31.
BUTTT....Democrats had railed against Frontier's plan to charge passenger sat least $39 per flight to guarantee they would sit next to an empty middle seat. They called it coronavirus profiteering.
The chairman of the House Transportation Committee called it “outrageous."
Was it wrong of Frontier to offer this? Do you wish they still were??
