2016.Frontier is expanding the fee hike to other popular travel periods as
well, including spring break (from Feb.
11 through April 4)and high season
during summer (from June 9 through Aug.
16.) Frontier Airlines said travelers
can avoid the fees by buying a package deal called “The Works”
that includes free bag check, roomier seats and priority boarding, among other
extras in one amount that ranges from $49 to $83 each way.These increased
baggage fees come as consumers are already fed up with the U.S.
airline
industry for an increasing list of a la carte fees.
 This week, American
Airlines introduced a new fee that lets customers lock in fares for up to a
week before paying.
 Meanwhile,  airlines collected $38.1 billion in
revenue from baggage fees alone in 2014.More From Fox News:Hunger Games Theme
