As airlines try to cut costs, bereavement fares for last-minute travel following the death of an immediate family member are slowly disappearing. American Airlines stopped offering them earlier this year, while options with Canadian airlines are very limited. Even Air Canada and WestJet admit bereavement fares are not necessarily a great deal. The reality is that in today’s competitive travel market, you’re simply more apt to find a less expensive fare with a quick internet search than any bereavement offering.
