Frontier Airlines' $1 Flight Offer Briefly Crashes Website

If you've got $1, you've got a flight with Frontier Airlines, at least until midnight Wednesday.
The Denver-based low-cost carrier announced an eye-popping "Fly For Only a Buck" one-day offer Wednesday, practically breaking its own website in the process.
The promotion is valid for travel between Sept. 2 and Sept. 16, with the exception of Sept. 8, which is a blackout date. Eligible flights are available from several cities including Denver, Atlanta, Chicago, Cleveland, Philadelphia, Trenton and Washington, D.C., among others.
There is a slight catch, though. Customers will still have to pay fees, $15 each way to be exact.
But even once the fees are factored in, the price remains ridiculously cheap at just over $30 for a roundtrip ticket.
Of course, per usual, passengers can anticipate paying extra for carry-on bags, checked luggage and seat assignments.
Travelers eager for a deal began searching Frontier's website this morning. In fact, so many people flocked to the site that it briefly crashed Wednesday afternoon.
"Oh no," read the image displayed at FlyFrontier.com Wednesday afternoon. "So many people are trying to take advantage of our low fares that our system can't keep up. Please try us again later and we will have a great deal waiting for you."
The airline thanked visitors for their patience, but it remains to be seen how many will stick around in hopes of landing a deal.
