LATAM Flights - How Long to Post?

Just completed our first trip on LA and are wondering what others have experienced with posting times to their AS accounts.

Within 2 weeks, or never. Make sure you save your BPs.

My experience with LA last month too. SCL-MAD in J posted in 3-4 days along with EK, QF, & CX, KE was the holdout, 3 flights over 10 days all posted together 3 weeks from the first flight. All on LA ticket numbers. FJ was about 10 days.

I wonder if the inconsistency is related to which airline actually flew one's route - LAN or TAM?

Nopo. I've never been on a TAM aircraft. But I do have experience flying Lan Chile / LAN / LATAM over the past 17 years.

Have you or @IStream flown with LA since the program changes took effect in July? I was surprised to see my flights post so quickly. I was also happy to see my native EK flights numbers on LA ticket stock post without issue considering that should have invalidated MP accural as per the T&Cs.

I have still never been on a TAM aircraft, TAM was not eligible for any AS earning (even after formation of LATAM) and I've had chronic issues with sporadic flight postings since the previous decade.

Any idea or speculation about when LATAM Brasil (or whatever they call it now) flights will be eligible for AS credit? I looked at the website today and it still shows the distinction.

had a flight with 7 LA flights and 1 JJ flight back in May.
The JJ flight was LA code. all LA flights posted automatically, except JJ operated LA code flight. AS says it wont credit.
LATAM says it credited to AS... trying to claim to AA but no dice so far.
maybe i will call it a day...
since i should keep AA exe plat anyways. no need to fight too hard for little miles. O class on GRU SCL.
