Retro Claim of EY Miles - Is it this slow?

My family (parents and brother) traveled EY recently between India and the US. I'm not sure if they had mentioned their EY FFPs at check-in.

But I sent in their travel details to the e-mail mid October and then again a reminder 2 weeks back. I still haven't gotten any reply from Etihad.

Just wanted to know if anyone else has experienced a similar situation? Would calling the call center help?

Thanks in advance!

It was much easier when one could claim missing miles online. I was doing just this when they changed to the current form. Got miles for one parent but with the new system I've still yet to hear a reply for my missing miles inquiry some several weeks later.

Sent a reminder today!

Long time since I had problems with miles posting on EY flights, but have now been waiting almost 6 months for miles with their partner Oman Air...
Keep on reminding them like every month. Etihad service is useless when it comes to this kind of issues...

I must be unlucky but Etihad never posts miles that quickly for me. I just routinely take photos of my boarding stubs and send it via email to the retro credit department, plus I call them and say that I am wanting credit. It usually takes a week for it to post. Not sure why my flights are always so delayed. I always make sure I have my Etihad number on the boarding pass.

In my case, everything works out fine if I make sure the FFP is confirmed at check-in and I have it in my boarding pass.

My family forgot to do that. That's why still waiting for a response from EY. Shall give them a call this week and keep you guys posted.

I had the same issue, so I called up Etihad's main reservation number in the US, got connected to an agent immediately who asked for the PNR (booking reference number) and saw indeed that i had flown the flight. Said she had sent a follow-up to it and would take 7-10 days for it to post to my account. On 7th day got an email that missing miles had been posted and it also showed up on my online account.
