>> know the airlines are cutting back big-time on the things we take for granted, but a few pricing plans from frontier airline may get your attention. this is sure to add to some cabin pressure . now passengers are going to have to pay extra to place carry-on bags in the overhead bins. the fees range in price from $20 for frequent fliers to book online to $50 for those who don't pay before arriving at the gate. this to put a bag in the overhead compartment.

>> if you want to book a seat in advance online, it will cost you another three bucks. this is what frontier airline says, we are actually lowering our prices by 12% and it makes up for it and allows fliers to pay only for the services you want. you buy it?

>> the compartments are there already. they're going to let them go empty instead of charging people?

>> when they start charging you to use the lavatory, that's when it's time to take the train.

>> but they let you bring a purse or briefcase still and not pay. it's more if you carry on a smaller suitcase.
