The wait is driving me nuts!

Hurry up AP and post my last flight so I can get instant E and request my upgrade for YYC-HNL next thursday! Seriously ---- you aren`t fast enough!

Almost certainly you'll need to wait at least 48 hours
Yes, that's the lower bound, not upper bound

Had my last flight credited within 24 hours and an email informing me of my 20 extra e-upgrades within 48 hours. Much quicker than usuall.

Funny flew tango fare on the 28th and points were posted in 24 hours. Tango plus fares three to six days, UA in 2 days, TAP in 2 days! It's a slow process with air Canada flights.

I fly home on the 3rd where I become *SE and fly back out on the 9th and want to upgrade on all four segments so I will be in the same boat!

Hmm, Mrs Mapleg and I are both missing an AC flight we took a week ago. The outbound flight posted in a couple of days, but nothing for the inbound flight.

Looks like I will use the online form to request the missing miles, but it asks for boarding pass number (and suggests a 3 digit code in their example). I don't see any such number on boarding pass .

I remember using that form a couple of years ago, and also did not have a 3 digit code for the BP...I left it blank, and still got the missing miles. All of the other information should be enough (Names, 014nnn ticket numbers, flight code, seat numbers).

My missing miles appeared in about 4 or 5 weeks.

Good luck.

There is always a delay in posting flights taken in the last 2-3 days of the month.

You know, I have been 100% for the past three months. I just did 4 (YVR-YYC-LAX) out of 4 (LAX-YYZ-YOW), half at the gate and half four days out. I hope being *SE does not make me miss out as an *E the Upgrade Gods have been kind to me!

Will Call AP today as I am within my 7 day window now and I want to upgrade but need those new credits for hitting 100,000!

I upgraded 3/4 flights YYC-YVR-HNL for my wife and I - only I am waitlisted (such a gentleman) but the flight is wide open up front. Pretty sure I'll clear by the gate.

Have had about 4 flights in 25 this year that didn't clear, which is pretty good considering the bulk of my requests have been on YYC-YYZ...

So my status has updated - e-creds have posted for the select priviledges, but still waiting on the threshold amounts.

But most importantly ---- waitlist cleared on the 2nd seat (for myself) at T-54 ---- woohoo, upgraded all the way through to HNL.

No R games for me!

Alwasy nice when it works the way its suppose too and HNL is always good no matter where on the plane you are, but the front is always nice. Still an E with 11 credits left waiting for my offical SE notice. Today at t-96h I am using 10 of the 11 credits and have been succesfull in my upgrade YOW-YYZ-YYC-LAX.....just four more hours for the final upgrade LAX to YVR! Yup this was a milage run booked over a month ago for less money than YOW-YVR!!
