Frontier Airlines which has cheap base fares, but tacks on fees for a carry-on bag, advance seat assignments, and soda and coffee, announced Wednesday that it will discount several common fees if the customer buys them all in a bundle. The package is called "The Works" and includes one checked bag, one carry-on bag in the overhead bin, the best available seat on the flight, priority boarding in Zone 1, and no fee to change a ticket later. Frontier is not eliminating any fees, just bundling them into one price.

Planning to fly Frontier Airlines on Friday? You might want to check your flight status. The airline says a severe hailstorm over Denver International Airport, Frontier's hometown airport, Wednesday night left many planes damaged and numerous flights canceled. Additional cancellations are expected. "The timing of this damaging storm couldn't have been worse," said Cliff Van Leuven, vice president of customer service. "High summer travel loads and the fact that other carriers at DIA were hit make it difficult to place passengers with other airlines, so we are doing all we can to minimize the pain of our guests' travel.

I don't think you can look at what happened over the past week at Frontier Airlines and feel too good about flying anymore. It is possible, of course, that you didn't feel too good about flying even before last week, but the events and pronouncements leading to and following the cancellation of all the company's flights Sunday morning had to reinforce the apprehensions you had. I know this because flying is one of those activities that produces...

Southwest Airlines Co., Philly's No. 2 carrier, wants to buy bankrupt Frontier Airlines Inc. for $170 million - and then phase out its rival. If Southwest is successful, it would have little impact on passengers at Philadelphia International Airport. Frontier has one flight a day to Denver from Terminal A-East here. Frontier operates two-thirds of its flights west of the Mississippi River and transports fewer than 1 percent of Philadelphia passengers. Acquiring Frontier is a big deal to Dallas-based Southwest, which transports 12 percent of passengers here.

IT'S GOING VIRAL. Ebola? No . . . at least not here in the United States, where the deadly virus has not spread among the general population. Although Ebola has been - and remains - a major, lethal public-health crisis in West Africa, cases in the U.S. have been limited to the death of a man who contracted the illness in Liberia before returning to Dallas, and now the infection of two hospital workers who treated him. What is going viral, however, is fear itself - what Franklin Roosevelt might have called "nameless, unreasoning, unjustified terror.
