Emergency, Bereavement and Compassion Airfares – Who Offers Them and How To Get Them

Emergency, Bereavement and Compassion Airfares – Who Offers Them and How To Get Them

It is still just the ‘big boys’ (legacy airlines) that offer emergency airfares. The low cost carriers like JetBlue, Southwest, Spirit etc simply do not offer these types of fares. I found it very surprising that while American, Continental, Delta and United all have ‘Compassion’ fare policies, US Airways does not. They are the only major US legacy airline that does not offer bereavement fares – shame on them!

Here is a breakdown of airlines that offer Bereavement, Compassion, or Emergency airfares, along with links for more information and phone numbers of where to call for tickets. NOTE: It is always necessary to secure these types of tickets by phone – they cannot be purchased on the airline’s websites.
