Any points when rebooked on non-*A flights

I was booked on US Airways to Atlanta via PHI. When I arrived at the airport, the agent told me my flight to PHI was delayed and I was not going to make the connection to ATL. She rebooked me on a Delta flight directly to ATL. Can I still collect Aeroplane points? I thought there was a thread about this subject?

I believe it's possible (no firsthand experience though).

Do you like bureaucracy?

If it is involuntary AND it is not due to weather, etc. You can

From SE Desk:

In the event of being involuntarily transferred to another airline not affiliated with Aeroplan, the member can request the corresponding Aeroplan Miles of the original Star Alliance ticket, provided the cancellation was due to a condition within the control of the Star Alliance carrier. This includes mechanical, crew and similar situations, but excludes circumstances beyond the airline’s control, but not limited to: weather, earthquake, fire, labour stoppages or strikes, civil unrest and closed airports. To receive credit, the member is required to send a brief description of the incident with a copy of the relevant ticket(s) and the original boarding pass(es) to the Aeroplan Centre. To claim your missing mileage, please send your request to:

You can double dip, i.e. earn miles with AE and DL.

If it is due to weather / traffic control - you can't.

I was rebooked to American Airlines.... not happy.

I was not sure why it was delayed. The flight in question was the BUF-PHI flight in the morning of Wed 5/22. How do I find out?

Can someone provide the hyperlink to the above paragraph? I could not find it in the aeroplan or the AC websites. I was trying to find out where to send the request to.

Recntly, I was told no ORC. In the past yes. I think there is thread where another poster noted in the past yes, but not now.
