BECAUSE OF A LONGTERM TERMINAL ILLNESS I HAVE,MY FAIMLY PITCHED IN & PURCHASED ME A TICKET TO PORTLAND,OREGON,FOR MY CHRISTMAS PRESANT. I TRAVELD TO PORTLAND ON 12/10/2000, HOWEVER WHILE VISITING I BECAME EXTREAMLY ILL. SO ON 12/16/2000, I CALLED TWA FOR THE NEXT FLIGHT OUT TO INDIANAPOLIS,IN.,I BOOKED FLIGHT 0024 LEAVING PORTLAND AT 10:52PM SATURDAY NIGHT. ABOUT AN HOUR IN THE FLIGHT THE PILOT ANNOUNCED THAT THE PLANE HAD LOST ALL ELECTRICAL POWER & WE WOULD HAVE TO MAKE AN EMERGENCY LANDING IN BILLINGS,MONTANA. EVERYONE WAS TERRIFIED,THE GUY SITTING IN THE EMERGENCY EXIT ISLE BEHIND ME AFTER LANDING HAD OPENED THE EMERGENCY EXIT DOOR,I FULLY INTENDED TO FOLLOW,NOT KNOWING IF THE PLANE WAS IN EMMINTE DANGER OR NOT, AS I STOOD UP TO RETRIVE MY CARRY ON I RUDELY SCREAMED AT BY A STEWARDS OVER A MEGAPHONE. WE WERE THEN INSTRUCTED TO WAIT IN THE BILLINGS AIRPORT FOR FURTHER INSTRUCTION. WHICH NEVER CAME. BECAUSE OF MY ILLNESS I HAVE TO CARRY MASSIVE AMOUNTS OF MEDICATIONS,WHICH WERE TO MANY TO CARRY ON,SO I HAD TO CHECK THEM IN BAGGAGE,I CONTINUALY BECAME EVEN MORE ILL. I THEN FOUND OUT FROM OTHER PASSENGERS THAT HAD CALLED TWA, THAT WE WOULD BE ALLOWED TO EAT IN A SMALL DINER,PROVIDED WE WAITED UNTIL 5:30AM. WITH VERY LITTLE ENERGY I WAITED & TRIED TO EAT SOMETHING,HOWEVER WITHOUT MY MEDICATIONS,IT JUST STARTED ME THROWING UP THE WHOLE DAY I SPENT AT THIS AIRPORT. TWA ALLOWED US TO ORDER UP TO $8.00 IN THE DINER. I THEN CALLED TWA MYSELF TO EXPLAIN MY EMERGENCY MEDICAL SITUATION & TO RESECUDLE MY CONNECTING FLIGHT IN ST LOUIS TO INDIANAPOLIS,THE CUSTOMER SERVICE WOULD NOT EVEN ADDRESS MY DELIMA WITH MY MEDICATIONS,THEY WOULD NOT PUT US IN AN HOTEL, AND THEIR REMEDY WAS THAT THEY DISPATCHED ANOTHER PLANE TO PICK US UP, & THEY BUMPED ME UP TO 1ST CLASS FOR MY 30 MINUTE CONNECTING FLIGHT FROM ST LOUIS TO INDIANAPOLIS & I WOULD BE RECEIVING 3000 AVATIOR MILES GOOD TOWARD MY NEXT PURCHASE OF A TICKET. I FINALY ARRIVED IN INDIANAPOLIS THE NEXT DAY 12/11/2000 AROUND 7PM. DEATHLY ILL, BECAUSE I WENT ALMOST 24 HOURS WITHOUT NECESSARY MEDICATIONS,TODAY IS THE 1ST DAY IM ALLOWED OUT OF BED & IM STILL TRYING TO RECOVER,WITHOUT THE MEDICATIONS,MY IMMUNE SYSTEM WAS COMPRAMISED & TOOK IT’S TOLL ON ME. I FEEL TWA SHOULD GIVE ME A VOUCHER FOR FREE TRAVEL WITHOUT RESTRICTIONS. I WAS UNABLE TO ATTEND ANY OF MY FAIMLY CHRISTMAS FUNCTIONS, WHICH HAS ONLY SENT MY DEPRESSION LEVAL TO AN ALL TIME HIGH & I FEEL I SHOULD BE COMPENSATED.
