Requesting miles without a ticket number

So I got invol rerouted to AA this past Sunday. I didn't have my AAdvantage number with me so I didn't put it in upon check in.

I found a mileage request form on AA.com but it requires ticket number. Is there a way to request miles without a ticket number? I only have my boarding pass which has the record locator but I can't seem to find the ticket number. I can't find reservation on AA.com with my record locator because I already flew. I know with most other airlines, you can just fax in your boarding pass. Anything like that for AA?

Thanks.

I think they wil take a BP faxed in - but it SHOULD have the TKT # (if e-tkt) on it. Call the 800-# say "Advantage Account" at the main menu, then "Agent" from that sub-menu.

You can try to find the ticket number based on your PNR or credit card info here:

Are you sure it doesn't have the tix #, I have both the green and the kiosk bp next to me and they both have the number there unless the ga only gave you the stub back. On the green one, it should be in the white box in the bottom center part of the bp, usually under the word electronic. For the kiosk type, it should be under the boarding time and above the barcode. Both type usually start with a 001 followed by 10 numbers. That number is your ticket number.

Ahh, it's a kiosk bp. The number above the barcode starts with 012 (NW ticket number), not 001. That's why I didn't realize it was the ticket number for my flight. I thought ticket number starts with operating airline but I guess it's actually issuing airline.

Thanks for your help

Also in general, credit card transactions have the ticket number on your credit card statement:

This is how mine shows up:

AMERICAN 0012304557XXXX(Travel)

Yeah, in general. But not for an invol reroute ticket. Also appearantly, I have to wait 15 days after the flight to request miles.

Not if you call in (generally - depends on agent.)
