The all-too-rare two-fer is in play at Frontier Airlines.
But you need to hurry.
The discount carrier is offering a 2-for-1 promotion called “Friends Fly Free” in which you can get a round-trip flight for free when you purchase a round-trip flight on select routes and dates. Tickets must be purchased by Sunday, May 19, and there are restrictions, of course.

The promotion is connected to Frontier’s Discount Den Fare Club program, which costs $59.99 a year to join. You also need to travel by June 12 or between June 18 and August 28, and tickets must be purchased seven days in advance.
The 2-for-1 special is only available for travel Mondays through Thursdays through the June 12 date. From June 18 to August 28, you can only fly on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. During that time period, blackout dates also fall on July 2 and 3.

In the meantime, Frontier’s 2,200 flight attendants on Wednesday ratified a new five-year contract after more than three years of negotiations. According to a spokeswoman for the Association of Flight Attendants (AFA), 94 percent of the group ratified the new deal.
According to airlines-flight-attendants-ratify-new.html” target=”_blank” rel=”nofollow noopener noreferrer”>the Chicago Business Journal, the new contract will give Frontier flight attendants an average 24 percent wage increase over the five-year life of the deal. Other benefits in the new contract include guaranteed rest periods, more schedule flexibility, five additional vacation days a year and other quality-of-life enhancements.
“Frontier flight attendants fought hard for this contract and overwhelmingly voted to ratify it. This contract provides immediate economic gains and locks in important work rules and protections for flight attendants,” Jennifer Sala, AFA Frontier president, said in a statement. “This shows the power of our flight attendant group when we stand together and fight for the contract we deserve.”

Delta Air Lines Upgrades Health, Safety Guidelines
As travel restrictions are lifted, Delta Air Lines has implemented a series of health protocols to keep passengers safe as they fly again during the coronavirus outbreak and moving forward.
From the time customers check-in for their flights until they collect their bags at the final destination, Delta officials claim the company’s main focus has shifted to the health and safety of passengers.
In the airport, travelers will notice check-in lobbies, self-service kiosks, gate counters and baggage claim are thoroughly wiped down throughout the day, while electrostatic spraying will take place in the planes and throughout terminals.
In addition, Delta continues to install plexiglass shields at check-in counters, in Delta Sky Clubs and at gate counters throughout the United States. Social distance markers will also be added at all of the airports served by the airline.
Hand sanitizer stations will also become easily accessible throughout the facilities.
“The (travel) experience is a very comfortable, a very safe experience, we have taken actions, even above and beyond what the CDC has recommended to ensure safety,” Delta Chief Customer Experience Officer Bill Lentsch said in a statement.
As for the actual onboard experience, Delta is now boarding passengers back to front and limiting it to 10 customers at a time to minimize your contact with others. The carrier is also blocking middle seats, adjusting capacity numbers and requiring face coverings.
Before passengers board the planes, cleaning crews complete an extensive checklist of procedures using high-grade disinfectant to wipe down personal and common areas of the cabin.
Delta also temporarily streamlined food and beverage offerings to reduce touchpoints, with snack bags given out during the first pass through the cabin by flight attendants.
