Take off this fall for just a penny (plus taxes) on Frontier Airlines. Penny fares are available on over 90 domestic routes (counting both directions). After taxes and mandatory fees, fares are only $10-$15 one-way or $25-$29 roundtrip.
Frontier even eliminated its online booking fee for these super-low fares, so this is the absolute lowest price you can get on these flights. Bag fees are extra unless you can travel with just a small backpack.
If you purchased one of the sale fares from yesterday's sale, you could potentially take advantage of the 24-hour rule and get a refund for the difference in price today.
- Travel Period: Now through October 9, 2019, with a 3-day advance purchase.

There are many more routes available for under $100 roundtrip. You'll have to decline all extras to get the lowest price.
And if these specific routes or dates don't work for you, check out the latest promo code sale on Frontier Airlines and see if there are any routes or travel dates that better suit your needs.
These fares only include one small personal item. Checked bag fees start at $30-$35 each way when purchased during the initial booking. Larger carry-on bag fees start at $35-$40 each way.
Seats will be assigned at random upon check-in for these prices. You may pay a fee to choose a specific seat.
Frontier offers the Works bundle, which can be added to any flight during the initial booking. It includes a standard carry-on bag plus a personal item, one free checked bag, seat selection (including stretch seating), priority boarding, flight flexibility, and refundability. This is a value if you want all of these amenities, but chances are you can get away with just adding what you need à la carte for cheaper.
Searching Frontier's site, I found a flight departing Philadelphia PHL on Wednesday, September 11, returning from New Orleans MSY on Saturday, September 14, for $29 roundtrip.
There isn't an online booking fee (carrier interface charge) for this fare, and therefore, it won't be any cheaper at the airport.
