Watch out! There is a reported incident of at least one airline price gouging on Bereavement Fare. The airline in Question is Continental and the situation was reported at the Consumerist.
Andy’s sister and her family suffered a relative’s death while traveling and had to stay for the funeral. Continental offered her a costly bereavement fare, telling her to take it or leave it, then hiked the price by $200 when she decided to check around and then buy the tickets.
Andy thinks his sister got a raw deal.
Bereavement Air fares are suppose to be discounted. Not In this case with Continental Airlines. They should help one save on Funeral Cost and come under the average cost of a funeral.
