I flew two segments on 2/27, same ticket. The first posted immediately. The second posted only yesterday. Both with the correct (at the time) 100% 1P bonus.

I am one of the MM's who's been downgraded with the introduction of the Plat level for MMs who fly more than I. Instead of the 100% mileage bonus I've gotten for years as a 1P, now I get 50%. Just did a booking for LHR in June and I'm a bit shocked at myself, but instead of going with a *A carrier, I went with the much more convenient (and cheaper!!) AA ticket. I've always taken the less convenient routing in the past because I love the miles, but I guess there is a limit to my love (which is something like 50% of a TATL).

Is it taking longer to post miles?

I flew on Tuesday and Wednesday and the miles have not posted yet. It usually takes a day or two. Has anyone noticed it taking longer?

Yes, there are many threads indicating that it is taking longer right now. They turned off mileage posting for several days before/after the changeover and have not completely caught up yet. I flew on Sunday and Tuesday and Sunday has posted but Tuesday has not yet posted.

Oh yes, seems to be taking 5 days. I originally thought it was merger integration issues, but the PMCO folks around here tell us it is feature of CO's IT system.

So this is how miles will post in the future then...? Five days after flying? I rather liked the quick posting UA did!

Not a big deal..... just a regression of technology.

Nothing for 3/5 either despite app indicating 3/5 was last flight date. Not comforting...

Confirmed by MPSC: Reservations such as mine that were accidentally confirmed upgrade into ON class instead of R were posted as award rez. I'd call MPSC if you're in this situation and its been more than 5 days.

Interesting, I was wondering why I had no change in fare to switch out a return flight yesterday from a connecting flight to a non-stop. My outbound segment cleared before the regime change, but on Sunday, showed as ON instead of Q class.

So, it will be another 10 days - if India is correct in what they're telling me - before my outbound flight gets posted. But, apparently, the entire cost of the round-trip ticket was recoded to be for the return flight. So, when I switched from the connecting flight to non-stop, I just had the $150 change fee - and I got a $10.45 credit for the differences in the one-way fares. I probably should have had to pay at least a few hundred dollars extra in fare differences, plus the change fee, or just done stand-by.

I guess you win some, lose some with the new system. My upgrade got hosed, but I got a $600 flight for basically free.
