Miles taking more time to post?

Scheduled to fly Nov 4 MIA-JFK-LHR-TXL. Had a Gate confusion with the MIA flight so was put by the rebooking center on MIA-LHR-TXL. Today Nov 7 miles still didn't post. Should I give it one more day?
You see with the computer glitches hoped to earn more miles if it calculates distance based then fare based...

In the past, miles from my AA marketed flights almost always posted the next day, but lately, especially with IRROPS/rerouting, it's consistently taking 3 or 4 days for them to post.

They will post, my last two trips to India, have taken up to 5 days to post from AA, and almost a week from BA, and unfortunatley, my trips recently have been fare based.

Last month I flew from PVG-DFW and the miles had posted by the time I landed at DFW. However, most of the time AA flights are taking 2 days to post instead of what used to be next day (if the flight was before 6p ET).

My miles almost always post within 48 hours after flight, but AA does ask you to wait 15 days before requesting missing miles so I'd definitely wait a couple more days. I wouldn't be surprised if you earn the same amount of miles as you were supposed to on your original itinerary. If your change was involuntary though you can request the additional miles.

I'd wait then request in a day or 2.

If they do credit based on fare then make sure you request Original Routing Credit for EQMs.

Hmmm..... My experience has been different. My flights this year have almost all posted the next day as long as they completed before midnight, and certainly not longer than 36 hours. Even my flights that have been pure LAN-marketed and operated have posted in no more than three days, which is much faster than past years.

Agreed. In past years when I've had to wait they always showed up in within the 15 days. I don't know for sure, but I would suspect that if you do use the missing miles webform it will automatically reject your request if you submit sooner than the 15 days.
