Do NWA flights post to your skymiles?

I fly NWA and Continental about 1 round trip per month in addition to a ton of Delta flights. Continental flights always post to my DL account within a couple of days, but NWA flights never post. I always give my Delta number at time of booking for both and verify that it is there on the boarding pass. I even go through the trouble of faxing in my NWA boarding passes after the flights don't post, but still no credit from Delta. I typically fly Y class on NWA too, so I know it earns credit. It isn't that big of a deal but it is annoying that this is such an issue. Anyone else have this problem or have any suggestions? Thanks

I never have any problems with NW flights posting to my DL account. It usually takes 2-3 days to show up. Sorry you are having problems.

I fly a ton of NW lately and had a problem only once (of course when I needed it to qualify for PM...). Otherwise the flights post within 3 days.

I have had a problem once. I faxed in my ticket receipt and BPs and it was posted the same day.

My flights on NW also typically post within a couple of days. I had one that did not, due to an involuntary re-route by NW on to US due to a delayed/canceled flight. I faxed a copy of my BP stubs and got "original routing" credit - that took a little over a week.

Sorry to hear you are having difficulty.

Do you contact SMS before FAXing your BPs?
How do you phrase your requests via FAX?

Even involuntary reroutes of my award travel itineraries onto NW have yielded me DL miles without issue.

I've only flown NW once with the intent to post the mileage to DL (as I will be doing for the future, since my WorldPerks account is drained). The mileage posted without a problem.

My experiences match whatnot27's. I flew NW to Europe last weekend and outbound miles were already posted when I got home and return miles were posted the next day.
