Frontier Airlines is now asking passengers to pay a 'Covid Recovery' surcharge.

The fee offsets costs like cleaning aircraft and PPE for Frontier's employees.

Democratic lawmakers Sen. Ed Markey, D-Mass., Rep. Steve Cohen, D-Tenn., and Rep.

The proposed fee was rescinded.

They should’ve been cleaning and sanitizing their filthy, germy friggin planes all along! Don’t charge extra for something you should have been doing all along but we’re only forced to start because of a pandemic.

Why the Airlines was bailout during Covid? Money should have never had gone to corporations. The Money should have all gone to the people. The People would have spent the money with those same companies. Didn't the US government just pay for the airlines to keep people on staff all year? FlyFrontier is by far the WORST airline in the US. Just when you think they can’t sink much lower, they do.

I thought we already paid the covid recovery surcharge.

Have they not been sanitizing and cleaning their stinky planes even before Covid There is federal funds for PPE and cleaning plus shouldn't sanitation and cleaning be normal procedure. Here comes the sea of companies adding charges and hiding it under 'Covid' We should be able to charge Frontier every time they depart and arrive late. They would go broke in 1 week!

Unvaccinated Americans are at risk of an aggressive and more dangerous Covid-19 variant. These are the most vulnerable statesSome states are making great strides in vaccinating their residents against Covid-19, but the ones that are not may soon be contending with a more transmissible variant, experts say. If unvaccinated people are at risk - that means children under 12. Experts assured us all along that children were low risk and should be in school/daycare/camp. Now they have no vaccine available, and are vulnerable to a variant.
