This is long overdue and it's the same shit the telecom industry used to do with cell and cable providers. Now they don't do it anymore.

Full rate disclosure up front is never a bad thing.

Whether or not she wins, I'm glad she's suing. These *are* deceptive practices, and we've all seen other airlines use similar ones.

The lawsuit shines a light on these practices everywhere and thus puts pressure to correct them.

Nobody in the world can be as "smart" and smug as you, a hole.
Before manufacturers initiated the m.a.p. policy (manufacturer advertised price) dealers would simply deduct freight and prep fees from advertised price. Some customers would travel hours to the dealership only to have the dealer add it back to the invoice at time of sale. Hence the question was created, "What is your out the door price"@!

Airlines that crash are more reliable then Frontier.

It was the attorney's idea hoping to get a few million just to walk away.
