My Friday flight hasn't posted yet either. I agree that this is odd since 48 hours seems to be the norm.

Flew UA (United Express) Friday and Sunday, none have posted yet. First time flying UA in a few months, but normally Delta miles show up within 24 hours. Seems UA is a bit slower?

Usually they post in 48 hours. But seems like something has gotten out of sync...maybe they are playing an April Fools Prank on us

My Saturday UAX and UA segments also haven't posted. I wonder what gives?

.bomb states the following, so I guess I'll wait. But I have to cross-check it with my PQM tracking spreadsheet!!!

Travel on United or United Express®

Mileage and Premier qualifying credit (where applicable) should be reflected in your account within 48 hours after travel is completed. If your flight credit has not posted after seven days, submit a request for credit.

It was a Tango ticket in an Air Canada Rouge flight-- it is a very low class but it still should have earned me 25% of the miles i.e. about 500 miles per passenger (the flight was from YYZ to LAS - (non-stop) AC 1853 - March 19, 2014).

One more data point:

Another datapoint: All-LH operated, half UA codeshares - only return posted

I flew ORD-FRA-DUS and back, outbound 3/23, return 3/29. Entirely on LH.

The outbound was booked as UA codeshare, the return on LH flight numbers. All on one PNR.

The return just posted, but the outbound has not. So indeed, it seems a UA codeshare on an LH flight will simply not post without submitting the form (which you annoyingly can't do until 15 days have passed, even though their system is clearly broken).

I believe you are mistaken.

"Tango" fares are I believe are S, T, L, A, or K fare classes. They are the cheapest and per United.com you will only earn 25% of miles flown (base miles) plus ZERO segments.

Only "Flex" fares earn full miles on Air Canada.

The table on UA.com is confusing, but there is a note with a ** for all flights between USA and Canada (which yours was.)

The note reads:

** Flights within Canada and between Canada and the U.S., Central America, Mexico or the Caribbean. Premier members earn a minimum of 125 base miles in S, T, L, A and K purchased fare classes on these flights.

None of my recent flights on LH - FRA-ADD, ADD-FRA, FRA-LHR have posted automatically (and MP number is on all BP's). The FRA-ADD posted after waiting 15 days and requesting credit; still waiting for the 15 days to expire to claim the other two. And mileage credit requests have been required for all LH flights in the past few months - Yep, system is indeed broken .

Yes, this is what I also said. Just that I got nothing (no miles). I won't expect any segment, but was waiting for miles to be posted.

Depends on the carrier. My AV flights have been consistently posting in 48 hours (with PQDs). This is faster than my UA flights, which are now taking a minimum of 4 days.

I have two partner flights not posted yet... Jan 1st LH D class (used a GPU to upgrade to O), and OS B class (used cash to upgrade to P). I've emailed 1K voice twice already, and nothing.... what's the best way to solve this?

I've heard conflicting reports regarding OS P class, but before upgrading, I emailed 1K voice asking if I would get the miles based on the purchased fare class (B), which they confirmed.

Have mileage postings been "turned off" again? Haven't had anything post from flight on early Sun yet.

4 days. That's what all my UA flights have been taking to post in 2014.
