Frontier Airlines offering $1 flights, crashes site

The flights must be booked today

Looking to take a last-minute trip? Frontier Airlines is offering $1 one-way domestic flights to select cities from Philadelphia and Trenton.

What's the catch?

Passengers must book their flights today and choose from select departure dates extending through Sept. 16. Also, the flights actually run $15 when fees and taxes are assessed.

Philadelphia flights are destined for Charlotte, Chicago, Houston, Miami and Orlando. Trenton flights are headed for Charlotte, Chicago, Minneapolis-St. Paul and Tampa.

If you can't schedule a trip during that span, Frontier is offering 100,000 one-way flights for as low as $25 if you fly between Sept. 16 and Dec. 16. 

Those flights must be purchased by Thursday and require customers to enter the promo code 5OFF, which provides a $5 discount to the base fare.

Various blackout dates apply.

The offer has been so popular so far that as of 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, the website was down.

A message to customers says too many people logged onto the site but asked those looking to take advantage to be patient, as a deal would be available at an unspecified time.
