    Airlines that give price breaks for bereavement

    Are there any airlines give discounts on immediate flights? My fiance's grandmother passed this morning and I need to get back to DSM. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Priceline last minute deals. Name your price and undercut the crap out of it.

    I don't know, and am only guessing, but since you and your fiance aren't married I'm not sure that you would qualify for that bereavement fare since her grandmother isn't technically "immediate family."

    I think most of them do, but you are better off chasing down your own deal. It's a nice discount usually, but it's off of a full price ticket, so you can usually find better deals online. This was what happened to my wife a few years ago. My grandfather died and I drove back right away, she was flying in for the funeral, she ended up getting a much cheaper ticket through her works travel agency than the bereavement ticket would have been.

    Good luck with everything. Deaths alone are tough to deal with besides having to figure out travel.
