Flying Blue Miles Expired

I had about 7k Flying Blues Miles Expire, anyway to get these back? Last Summer I flew UX(BCN-MAD) and put in my Flying Blue # but never got credited any miles. I guess it was super duper cheap discount economy class? Any tricks or ideas of how to get these miles back?

It's not really possible to know if it is normal or not that your UX trip has not been credited, as you do not tell us which was the booking fare you were booked on. But in any case, it is too late to retro-claim them. It must be done within 6 months of the flight date.

There are plenty of threads on this.

And effectively, the answer is no. 7k is not such a huge balance - others have lost more than 10 times that balance.

Q for domestic flights in Spain earns 25%, so your flights were eligible. Too bad as it's too late now.

That's right. retro claims can only be made within half a year of the flight. Sorry, I'm afraid that your miles are really gone...
