According to a Wall Street Journal article, airline bereavement fares are disappearing as fast as your elderly third cousins. You used to be able to go to relatives funerals for 50% off of full fares. Now, US Airways has eliminated these fares altogether. Continental has reduced the discount to 5% off fares below $499 and 10% off fares above $500. The other part of this that sucks, is that you’ll now have to pay a change fee if the date of the funeral changes, whereas bereavement fares used to have no change penalty. Way to go!
