Guam Hotel Issues
AFA has spoken with Narita management about the lack of hot water situation and they have spoken to the hotel management in Guam. Hotel management thought the problem had been fixed, however, further repairs were needed.
UAL Hotel Accommodations began working on a back-up plan for the crew if the problem was not fixed before the next crew checked-in. They also stayed in contact with the hotel and continue to monitor the situation at the hotel.
It is important to TVLLOG this and other ongoing issues when they occur. Although some have said that lack of hot water is an ongoing issue, yesterday was the first travel log reporting this problem since November 2015 and only the second TVLLOG reporting a hot water issue. Your reports are needed so that we can address issues with the hotel.
Please remember that a lack of hot water, no power, no heat/air conditioning, broken door locks, bugs or vermin, no food availability whatsoever, noise that prohibits legal rest or any situation that threatens your safety or well-being, allows you to seek ‘self help’, i.e. go to another hotel and expense it if necessary. You can find step by step instructions on seeking self help in the “On The Line” booklet, or on the MEC website. http://unitedafa.org/schedule/on-the-line/hotel/default.aspx#SelfHelp
While the hotel is disapproved by AFA, a lack of hotels in Guam, that can accommodate the number of rooms that we need, without blackout dates, makes it challenging to for us to move. In the meantime, TVLLOG’s are needed so that we can address issues that the hotel can fix while we stay there. Ultimately we continue to advocate moving to a different property in Guam.
