I think that maybe this has something to do with my delay for getting the miles. booking through Alaskan, checking in with American, etc. I hope that it is not an issue when they compare my eticket itinerary to the boarding pass and see that the flight numbers and Airlines are different and then reject my claim!
Not a problem. This occurs with basically every airline, different fare codes displayed on the BP. I took an SAS flight recently to find that on the transaction records, it says K class. However, on the boarding pass, it says M. Doesn't have to be the standard "Y" or the fare class booked.

Just recently flew from LAX to DFW on AA on sept 30th and the AM just got credited to my MPC account today. So that is 2 weeks.

I booked my AA flights on AA.com and placed my MPC number into my booking.

I was skeptical of the AA.com website and whether AA would actually credit my miles to MPC, so it doesn't hurt to show your MPC card upon checkin and check that your boarding pass to make sure that it reflects your OW status to make sure you get the miles credited correctly

Wow. That is slloooww, reflecting the relatively poor coordination between AA and partners, v.v. A recent long-haul LH flight was immediately credited to UAM+ after checking on arrival.

Resurfacing this thread with the same question.

Does it still take one week?

In the age of newer technology, I used a mobile boarding pass. The link no longer works to retrieve my mobile boarding on a previous flight. Does CX still require a boarding pass to claim missing miles, what do they do in the case of a mobile boarding pass?

Its CX's fault on this one. AFAIK and from what i've seen, CX's database doesn't update with partner miles sooner than once a week (and on a monday i believe). JL,QF and BA flights i've taken have posted to my AA acct within 3 days. CX flights always take 10+ days.

Good to know this same issue exists after 7+ years. Will see if it shows up in my account after 10 days

Yes and that's why I always save a PDF.

Just want to check with anyone over recent experiences of flying AA and crediting the mileage to CX...per above and other threads, it looks like the timing is around 2 weeks before the flight credits. Still true?

I flew over Christmas and want to make sure that my flight credits within Jan. Need the Club Points into my current membership year, which expires end-Jan.

My Dec 9, 11 and 13 CX flights were all posted Dec 16. My Sep 2, 4 and 5 CX flights were posted on Sep 9. So it lead me to believe CX flights are posted to AA the following Saturday in a batch.

Data point, my AA flight took place on 6th Dec., was credited to MPC club points and Asia Miles on 13th Dec.

Actually, I am inquiring about the opposite...taking an AA flight and when it credits to CX MPC. Thanks for your reply anyway.

Thank you! Looking like the flight credit comes through reasonably quickly.
