This message is for pre-merger Alaska Flight Attendants
The busy summer travel season is nearly upon us and is anticipated to be one of the busiest travel seasons on record. Along with the increase in travel comes the possibility of irregular operations and things going awry pertaining to layover hotels and transportation. As a reminder, management has a responsibility to provide hotel accommodations and corresponding transportation to and from the hotel to Flight Attendants on a layover. This information is contained in section 34 of the contract.
If you have a problem with your hotel or transportation, report it!
Management, in conjunction with their hotel vendor API, uses a website called My Crew Care to collect feedback from crew members on hotel and transportation issues. My Crew Care, can be accessed through the Flight Attendant Website from the main menu > Hotels > Hotel Links > My Crew Care.
In order to take action on issues with layover hotels and transportation, your AFA Hotel Committee needs to know when you have a problem. Reports submitted through My Crew Care are automatically routed to your AFA Hotel Committee so they can track issues and trends in our layover locations.
First Time Using My Crew Care System?
When you open the My Crew Care site for the first time, you’ll need to register with your alaskaair.com email address. After registering, the system will send you a confirmation email. From the confirmation email, click the link to confirm your registration. Once you complete this registration process, you won’t need to do it again. API has written a user guide for the My Crew Care system that you can access by clicking here.
Bed Bug Resources
Being aware of bed bugs and other in-room pests is important, especially going into summer. If you encounter bugs in your hotel room, immediately report the situation to the hotel for resolution and file a report in My Crew Care. We’ve put together some information about bed bugs, including how to inspect your room for bugs upon arrival and how to tell the difference between bed bugs and other bugs. You can find these resources through the Hotel Committee page of the AFA Alaska website or by clicking here.
