Tipping is always a hot-button issue, especially for travelers who feel as though they are greeted with a smile whose warmth correlates to the size of the proffered or expected tip. We tip the bellman, the housekeeper, the waiter, the cab driver and, more recently, flight attendants, who used to split pooled tips that resulted from a tip request on a credit card screen. Frontier doesn’t do that anymore — the pooling, we mean, not the tipping. Beginning Jan. 1, “it’s every man and woman for themselves,” Justin Bachman writes in Bloomberg. Critics of the practice object, saying tipping flight attendants creates a perception that safety isn’t the primary reason flight attendants exist.
