The Air Force Services Agency has announced an expanded space-available reservation policy designed to maximize occupancy at lodging facilities. Under the new system, lodging officials can accept and confirm space-A lodging reservations up to 30 days in advance based on low projected occupancy rates. The window for reservations decreases as the percentage of projected occupancy rises. For example, when a projected occupancy rate is 65 percent or less, space-A guests can make reservations up to 30 days in advance. At 80 percent, the reservation falls to two weeks, at 85 percent, seven days, and at 86 percent, three days. Under this new system, higher priority customers may not bump space-A customers with confirmed reservations. Neither can they be bumped once they are assigned lodging except during contingencies, emergencies or when the installation commander determines higher priorities exist.
