Both BA J segments posted on the Tuesday following flights on the previous Thursday and Friday (so five and four days, respectively).

Split Posting Plagues AS

Just flew LAX-LHR-FCO on BA departing Friday night (3/22), and the LAX-LHR segment posted Tuesday (3/26), while the LHR-FCO still has not. I seriously don't know of any other carrier that so consistently splits posting of separate segments on the same itinerary. They pretty much always get split, and this has happened across operating carriers - had it consistently happen with flights operated by BA, AY, and SQ. A minor issue I suppose, but it also seems to correspond with posting errors, particularly for the short-hauls.

This year, no such luck when I was waiting on a December Air Tahiti Nui flight to credit. I have had these end of the year trips that get me to Gold but require lots of handholding to actually get the EQMs; minor silver lining is that my useless Gold Upgrade certs are good for 24 months since I dont get Gold til my flights credit in January.

Well, the flights are on different days, so maybe the Friday flight made the Tuesday posting cutoff, but the Saturday flight did not and will post this Tuesday.
Robert and dayone like this.

This is precisely what happened in my case. Flew IAD > LHR on Friday, March 22 which posted to my account on Tuesday, March 26. I flew LHR > FCO on Saturday, March 23 and that segment posted this evening, Tuesday, April 2. For the return, I flew MAD > JFK on Saturday, March 30 which did not post today, so I suspect you are right about a Friday cutoff. I assume Ill see the flight post by next Tuesday.

Has anyone ever experienced trying to get credit for an airport that's new / not recognized by AS yet? Flew into and out of the new Tulum airport at the end of March on AA, and every segment but the flights involving TQO have posted. When I previously tried searching for AA award space on AS, the Alaska site wouldn't even accept the TQO airport code as a valid entry...

Wondering if this is going to be a major headache to try and get credit for these 2 flights or if an agent will have to manually add them?

I have had 2 BA business class tickets not properly post, even with my AS FF number and status prominently displayed on all BPs. The outbound segments were in early January, and only one posted, the return in February (nothing posted) and then a new outbound in February where again only segment posted. Interestingly, 4 family members were on the same flights with AS FF #s and all of them got proper and prompt crediting to the AS MP accounts. What is going on? I emailed AS the ticket nos and copies of BPs, and still nothing. Is there an escalation path for this? I have never had an airline make so make so many crediting errors as this, not sure if it is BA or AS but at this point I missed the chance to burn the miles under the old AS award charts.

Call. I had an issue with getting ORC posted correctly and the agent handled it in 1 phone call and 1 email. Total of 5 minutes of my time. Also, she noticed my BA legs hadn't credited yet and said if they didn't within 14 days just to reply to the original email and she'd post them herself since she now had my entire itinerary.

Just make sure you call the number for "Account" listed on the website, not the reservations line: 1-800-654-5669

With roundtrip reservation, could one leg's miles get posted before flying the next leg?

I have a Biz class RT booked via AA with few QR segments; all have AA flights number (as QR ones are all codeshared). The outbound and inbound are 8 months apart. I'm hoping i don't need to wait all 8 months before the miles are posted. Any data point here for that? Thanks!

I just had a CX J post in less than 24 hours (made the cut off maybe?)

But the return flight is now taking more than 3 days. So pretty inconsistent.
