Doubt it can be done.
If you are employed or know someone well who is employed with the airlines it can happen.
Back when my mom was on her death bed, back in the early 2000's.
My wife called Delta and was able to get a bereavement discount.
And no one in my family works for an airline.
Was your wife in India?
I think Delta still flies to India. Still need to fly to the U.S. first. A lot has changed since the early 2000s.
If I was in India and needed to get to the Ukraine I would just list as nonrev standby on Emirates,Air France,or Royal Jordanian,etc.. Connect in Dubai.Get there probably within the same day and cost me around $100 or less.
wait this is interesting
how is this done? you show up at the airport and ask to be "nonrev standby" with as many airlines as you can?
and they will fly you for $100?
please advice ... thank you so much ...
