American – $88: Denver – Los Angeles (and vice versa). Roundtrip, including all Taxes

A good nonstop fare between Denver and Los Angeles.

There is a $40 fare via Frontier, but factoring in Frontier’s fees, you would pay about the same as this fare via American. If you take a carry-on bigger than a book bag on Frontier, it’ll cost you $35 each way. Checked luggage on Frontier is $20 each way. And don’t forget that advanced seat assignment starts at $4.

On Frontier, a typical traveler who has a 22″ roller and wants advanced seat assignment would pay $88: $40 for the fare, $40 for a checked luggage (or $70 for the carry-on roundtrip), plus at least $8 for advanced seat assignment or or minimum total of $88 — the same as American, but without the value of collecting American miles.

Always look at the total cost and not just the fare. The extra fees do add up.
