Miles for delays?

A couple of times this year I thought I've heard cabin crew announce words to the effect that miles would be offered to M&B members to compensate for flight delays. No miles were ever credited so the first time I assumed I had misheard but second time I queried with A3 and they replied that crew don't have the authority to offer miles in this way.

This may well be true (and I may need to get my ears checked) but has anyone else come across this? And even been credited miles?

I've never heard such an announcement on board and, consquently, never received miles for a delay.

As part of the after-landing announcement, they always mention "free miles for upgrades" when talking about Hertz car rental. Could that be what you heard?
