Subject: Compassionate Airfares

We will be traveling Tuesday, but not under the best of circumstances. My sister-in-law died somewhat suddenly on the 4th so the following day I checked online at Continental (the only reasonable way to get to Dayton, Ohio, from Houston).

Not surprisingly the round trip fare was $1276.50 per person since it was last minute, not staying the magic Saturday night, etc. We called Continental and got a compassionate fare for $703.50 per person with an open return depending on availability at no extra charge.

The reservation person was very considerate and expressed his condolences.
