Delta Miles - How long till they post

Just wondering how long miles tend to post from Delta. Flew YVR-SLC-LAX last night. Last time I flew Delta SEA-LAX miles posted same day into my Alaska mileage account. What is the normal time frame?

I flew DL/NW SEA-AMS on 1/15, and the miles have not posted yet.

I flew AA ORD-BOS on 1/30, and the miles have not posted yet.

On the same itinerary as ORD-BOS, I flew AA BOS-ORD on 2/2, and the miles posted on 2/9.

I think I'm going to e-mail in the boarding passes soon.

same problems here, different cities. Seems like the returns from a AA city through ORD to an AS flight post but the departure date connections from ORD-Destinations aint posting. I think its pretty stupid you have to fax information for codeshares especially booked on AS with an AS itinerary. Can they not look it up or what??

It also seems to take about a week for AS flights to post over to DL. I suspect there's some weekly data exchange process in place.

Do DL segments flown under the AS codeshare number count as AS EQM's or DL (partner) ones?

Just check my account and my miles from Friday (YVR-SLC-LAX) have just posted. I find it amazing that my DL miles seem to post faster than my AS miles. I've had AS miles take up to 7 days to post.

A random return segment on 2/8 DTW-SEA just posted today, but my 2/4 (which did involve an irrops on a DTW-PIT) has not posted yet.

I also suspect the PIT-DTW that didn't post is probably one of those delta connection flight numbers that are strangely not in the valid flight ranges. Just wondering, when is that going to get fixed? DL3491 ...

I flew DL on 2/8/10 SFO-MEM-TYS. Nothing has posted so far

On 2/10/10 I flew TYS-MEM-SFO and only the MEM-SFO portion has posted. I will probably give it a few more days before I fax in my boarding passes to the MileagePlan desk. If Delta can't get the mileage postings right, having them fix the UG system for MVPG's is going to take forever.

However I'd rather rather have upgrades on DL then the miles posting right... its harder to get an upgrade thru a fax

Delta Eligible Flight Number Range

My experience has been that DL miles (if in the eligible flight number range) post just as quickly as AS/QX flights.

The elgible flight number range, though, is horribly out of date, and has been since Delta started the Northwest integration process back in October.

Now that all NW flight numbers have been converted to DL flight numbers (which occurred about 2/1/10), would it be too much to ask that the eligible flight number range for DL flights be updated on the AS website?

A mainline DL flight from MCO to MSP is outside the range (DL 2437) and requires a manual miles request. The old NW flight number (also 2437) was a qualifying flight number.

It might be that DL will continue to tinker with the flight numbers --- but it sure could save AS a bunch of time on manual entries for DL if they'd only update the eligible flight number range to reflect the current DL reality.
