Default so this is what you get when you help in a medical emergency....

I used my frequent flyer points for an upgrade to first class on a red-eye from LA to NY. I am an RN. There was a medical emergency within the first half hour or so into the flight. I volunteered to help as an RN. There was no one else medically certified stepping forwards that could also help out.

I have no issue with volunteering my skills-----BUT, I did not get to sleep. I did not use my FIRST CLASS seats for most of the entire flight. And when I wrote to Continental asking just for a refund of the points for the upgrade ---I received NO ANSWER whatsoever to my request. This is so sad and poor customer service.

The patient needed assistance -- I did the right thing - but I really wish that Continental would have done so also -- ad it was such a small request. As it is also my nursing license-- you can bet that if there was a problem I would have heard...
