The new carry-on fee announced Wednesday will be $25 if paid in advance, and $100 if paid at the gate. It applies to bags in the overhead bin, so small bags under the seat will still be free.

Passengers who buy their tickets on the airline’s website won’t have to pay.

Frontier says the new fee will take effect this summer, and it will announce a specific date later.

The new drink fee begins July 1. Water will still be free.

Spirit Airlines Inc. began charging a carry-on fee three years ago.

Frontier’s parent, Republic Airways Holdings Inc., is trying to fix Frontier’s finances and sell it.

But see where it says that if you buy your ticket on their website, the bag is free. So this doesn't help raise revenue so much as discourage people from using third-party web sites. Which, I guess, also raises revenue. OK.

If you don't like this nickel and diming from the commercial airlines, than consider a charter. Its much more convenient, they will accomodate requests to serve gourmet meals with only the best chassideshe hashgacha, show videos of a daf yomi class rather than pritzusdike movies and all the flight attendants will be dressed tzinisudike. This is the way all the chashuve rabbonim fly to their summer homes and the most chashuve shilichim from EY fly to New York to schneur on behalf of their mosdos.
