This was a link inside the link from tconi. It sounds like more of a hassle than I could imagine. They will want proof and I don't know how I can get that. I don't have any of that information and don't really think I can get much except the funeral home. My sister died at home. No illness or disease. No regular doctor.
Is there compassion in bereavement fares?
The standard policy for most airlines is that at the time of purchase, the carrier will require the name and relationship of the relative, in addition to the name, address, and phone number for the funeral home, hospice or hospital. If applicable, the name of a doctor may be needed as well (as if most doctors have the time to respond to calls from airline reservationists). For those who are distraught or grieving, this can seem like a cruel procedure, yet the airlines claim the world is filled with travelers who would take advantage of such policies if proof were not required.
