DENVER - Frontier Airlines is lowering its fares, but passengers will have to pay fees for any extras beyond a seat on the plane.

Starting Monday, the Denver-based airline is cutting economy prices by an average of about 12 per cent.

Passengers will get to bring one item that fits under the seat, but will have to pay extra to either put a bag in the overhead bin or check a bag. They'll also have to pay extra to select a seat in advance or to get a drink or food.

Passengers who want everything included can still buy a more expensive "classic plus" ticket.

The Denver Post reports (http://bit.ly/PKNgvC ) Frontier's new bare-bones fares are about 18 per cent lower than rival Southwest Airlines.
