Ticket for emergency travel

Jump to last reply

We, family of 3, might need to go to the UK soon. My mother (90) has had a fall and is not doing well and might not have long to go. My sister said to not come right away as Mom is in hospital and wouldn't know me if I came now, but to wait until Mom passes on, which I can understand.
BA and United are the only airlines that fly direct to the UK from our local airport. I don't know if they do emergency fares any more and how much more they are likely to be over the regular fare. Do you need to supply hospital info, death cert or anything else? Any info is much appreciated.
