It depends on the carrier and program involved. Some programs allow retroactive credit up to 6 months prior to enrollment for their own flights (not partners).

Hi Terry, Thanks for replying. Mind to share which airline is that? So that I don't have to read all the small prints. I've checked BD, M&M, AC, all seems not able to get miles for eligible activities before enrolment.

It really depends on which airlines you took your flight [email protected]:-)

For example, SQ allows credit for up to 6 months prior to enrollment for SQ flights.

Retroactive mileage claims that are made prior to enrolment in KrisFlyer are only valid for Singapore Airlines flights and must have taken place no longer than 6 months prior to enrolment.

The flight is on Turkish Airline. But Turkish Airline seems to suggest from their website that miles can only earn after enrolment.

It seems to me that the only program which allows partner flight credit prior to enrollment is NZ (within 30 days)[email protected]:-)
