MileagePlus number not on Lufthansa boarding pass (but embedded in barcode)

i inputed it when I bought the ticket through Lufthansa on their web site. Fly tonight. Where would it appear on my printed boarding pass? Can they add it at the airport?

In my experience, it will not have the number, but will just say UA*G (assuming you have Gold status) or UA*S (for Silver status). I'm not sure exactly what would be printed with no status.

Sometimes things break somewhere and do not carry over. I had an award ticket once, purchased through United but all legs operated by Lufthansa. I realized that the MileagePlus number got lost somewhere in the process when they tried to charge me for checked-in luggage. Added the number back right at the counter, and all was well.

It will either say UA*G and nothing else, UA*G and UA/XXXXXXX or UA*G UA/XXX X 123. Replace UA*G with UA*S if silver. Don't know what GM's get as I haven't been one in a long time.

I have had the same experience. No Number, but got credit.

Try decoding the barcode on the BP, IIRC when I traveled last month the BP didn't show my MP number printed but it was encoded in the barcode. Credit appeared within 1 business day of arrival--maybe even sooner.

even if it doesn't credit. LH retro-credit can be done online and is easy.
