Crew accommodation in London

For more than 30 years, Gloucester Hotel was a hotel both for the pilots and cabin crew during their stay in London. Now the crew has moved to a 5-star hotel which I will not named due safety reason in the heart of busy London.
This new hotel allows the chief stewards/stewardesses and the IFS free access to its executive lounge. These senior crew are also entitled to free breakfast during their stay in London. In all the crew rooms there are free Wi-Fi.
Gloucester Hotel did not extend the above perks to the crew and because of that plus the high room rates the airline decided on the move.

Note: The hotel committee consists of unionists and management people. They will source for hotels based on the following criterion:

  • The hotel must be located in a safe place
  • The hotel rates must be reasonable
  • There should be amenities nearby eg: eateries, supermarkets etc
  • Any other reasons .....

Hotels around the world dont like and dont welcome screw. Hence there is no love lost from Gloucester. Refusal to extend perks and lower prices is the best way to rid those scums and vermins.

Sounds like these comments are written by the same person. Could be from MGT or a crew who is versatile and knowledgeable also widely travelled. It is not only in SIA CC but other airline crew as well.
