Low-priced carriers such as Frontier and Spirit, who offer tickets with no assigned seating, baggage that is checked or carry-ons, in certain cases, have introduced new discount fare competition into cities throughout the U.S.

Frontier operates a fleet of 70 new Airbus A320-family narrow-body airliners that is expected to grow to more than 100 planes by 2020.
Tickets for New Orleans, Phoenix and San Diego are now available for purchase. And Frontier will add a new flight between West Palm Beach and Long Island. The airline also offers nonstop trips to Orlando, Philadelphia and Trenton, N.J., Cleveland and Denver. Diamond said the reason Frontier can offer such low prices is by being "aggressive" in figuring out ways to cut costs.
The new flights will begin this fall and will be fully scheduled by next summer, though only six destinations start service before March.
In 2016, Frontier carried almost 575,000 passengers to and from MIA, making it the airport's seventh busiest passenger airline, officials said.
"Ten new routes from a single city in a single day is an unusual feat", Scott Fisher, Frontier Airlines senior director said.
