How long does it take Alaska Air miles to post?

I'm waiting for miles to post from an AS flight that I credited to SM. It's been over a week. How long should I wait before sending BPs, etc.?

I took a AS flight a couple of weeks ago and I think it took a little less then a week to post the miles. But I'm sure it wasn't more then a week.

In the old DL SM, AS miles posted on Monday/Tuesday after the flight or the week after. Don't know if it is still the same with the new NW-backed SM system.

Previously on WorldPerks, I was accustomed AS flights posting weekly on either Wed or Thursday following the AS segment.

AS has been having issues with SABRE... there have been a couple double/triple postings of miles & eqm's... that were completely removed and reinstated... so something is a little fishy currently...

Typical AS posting to DL SkyMiles is 7-10 days. If it's not in your account after 10 days then submit a missing mileage request or call DL.

I'm still waiting for my January flight. Didnt post within 3 weeks so I mailed copies of my BPs to Skymiles. No response at all. Nothing posted, nothing communicated back.

That's weird...

Perhaps the mail went AWOL?

My last 3 AS flights haven't posted at all. One was in February (a transcon no less) and the other 2 a week+ ago. The fun part is I don't have the BPs any more for the Feb transcon. Not sure what is going on, I've never had this problem before and I know my DL # was in there because I got to pick premium seats.

I had a couple of SAN/PDX flights in February that didn't post. After 3 weeks I contacted DL and they posted the miles. Important note: you will need the Ticket Number in order to get the mileage credited. The ticket number is not printed on the ticket. Thankfully, I had the original DL reservation email and the ticket number was in the email.

I had an AS flight in January that never posted automatically. It took an email and two phone calls to finally have them credit me the miles.
