How long for EK flight to credit to AS?

Has anyone had any experience with it yet? Website says 4-6 weeks but I need AS miles for an award that this flight will push me over, so wondering if I should wait a bit longer ...

I returned DOH-DXB-SEA on March 16 and was credited on April 30. A very polite Alaska Rep told me they are still coming up to speed on the EK miles and have a backlog.

Good Luck!

How long does it take Emirates flights to post to AS?

I recently credited an Emirates flight in F to AS. Several subsequent flights, on other carriers credited to yet other carriers, have posted to their respective programs. How long does it typically take an Emirates flight to post to AS?

Thanks, Jerry. I shall be patient. I had thought I would lose the value of the Emirates miles altogether so was really happy when I found that AS was a partner. Thus, I shall be points ahead if/when they post.

I think that mine took couple of weeks. I had already almost forgotten that they were going to AS.

Still around 2 weeks. Much better than it has in the past (i.e. 2012).

Cheers,
Kermee

I'm jealous, right around 3 weeks for me and still no sign of the miles. Do I really have to wait 60 days before filing for credit?
