SK flights - do they ever post automatically?

Here's a newbie question - I've flown on LH, BD and SK with BD codeshare. LH and BD posted within 24 hours. Those flown on SK metal haven't posted yet (1 week) Do these post automatically or should I mail in the tix + some of the boarding passes?

BTW - SK issues one BP even if there are two legs. I changed my seat on the second leg at the BD desk at LHR, they took away the old BP and gave a new one. But the new one of course had only the second leg on it, so I'm without a BP for the ARN-LHR leg. Even if I claim misiing miles, any chances of them posting?

Never had an issue with SK posting although sometimes it has taken 3-4 days to show up.

Likewise I have never had an issue with SK with the exception of an invol reroute which was to be expected.

No issues. Just had a full fare Y ticket between CPH-LHR credit in the last month (credited after a couple of days). Also had some domestic SK flights credit last week (again almost immediate credit).

I fly quite regularly with SK and they're generally quicker tham Bmi themselves...

Than it must be my bad luck, over a week gone, no credit (BD flight number, SK metal). The return leg hasn't posted either. Funny, because the flights on BD metal on the same ticket all posted.

Mailed the stuff to Nottingham.

Yes to SK automatic posting, no for TP and TK and anytime I change times on BD flexible Y.

How are they with SQ, will miles post automatically, especially if the flights are booked online at SQ's site and the DC number is provided then?

I just had a little tour in the Nordics/Baltics and also waiting for posting. I had two segments on Air Baltic, ticketed with SK. I assume they won't post for DC as the metal counts, right? Shame.

If I use my DC FF number starting 0000xxxxxxxxx, it won't post, so I use my old number 1xxxxxxxxxx and it posts!

SK miles post with old numbers, usually within 24 hours. Quicker than BD flights. For some reason SK does not recognise my new BD number.

My number starts 100xxxxxx and haven't posted.

Funniest thing - checking in at AMM, the AMM-LHR leg's BP showed BD*S. The LHR-ARN leg showed BDP. Meanwhile I'm BD*G

A recent CPH-ABZ-CPH posted within 24hrs... the new number was in the system & my BD*G was shown correctly... (which resulted in a nice op-up into C on the way back...)

SK domestic? I thought that SK domestic flights are not eligible for mileage accrual?? AFAIK, it's to do with some law in at least Norway and Sweden...
