“Dreaming of summer?” the recent tweet from Frontier Airlines asks. “We can take you there. Fly from $11.”
Not to be left out, fellow low-cost carrier Allegiant sent an email this week advertising domestic late-summer deals as low as $24 each way. And in its own email, Southwest had this suggestion: “Set your sights on summer travel with a $49 fare.”
Cue the record-scratch sound effect. Do they mean this summer, age of the coronavirus pandemic, era of uncertainty about when most nonessential travel will return?
The short answer is yes.
