Frontier Airlines, an American low-cost airline, announced that customers can buy a 'social distancing upgrade' for $39 starting Friday. The upgrade guarantees a seat next to an empty middle seat to maintain social distancing during flights. While other airlines are taking similar approaches to keep passengers at a safe distance, Frontier is the first airline to charge fees.
