Yes, they're posting for me. What I've noticed is that the regular miles will post very early morning two calendar days after the flight (e.g., on a Wednesday for a Monday flight), and the jumpstart miles post in the evening of that day.

The terms and conditions say you need to book and fly by June 15th. What if I have a trip that starts on or before June 15th but the return is after. Will that give me double miles for the segments before June 15th or does the entire trip have to be within the time window?

Any help is appreciated.

If it works like last year's double miles, the flights that depart the 16th or later won't earn double miles.

That's the way it just worked for me -- actually I think I got credit for double miles I didn't deserve. Booked a work trip through our online travel service the day before the offer came out/day I signed up but still got the Jump Start credit.

I flew 5300 BIS miles BWI-BOI on Saturday 5-1, 2 RJ segments & 4 mainline (including a new A321). Got a schedule critical standby for an earlier flight, leisurely made two short connections, scored all 4 FC upgrades in good seats, and bonus miles posted 5-3, 2 days after the flights. It was a nice day for flying, no airport issues, clean planes, mostly full planes, freindly crews, and above average service on all 4 FC segments.

For some reason my miles are not posting - not regular, not double. I'm not getting upgrade emails either. I've called repeatedly and it's a hassle to get the credits. Anybody else having this problem?

Also I was told that when I'm traveling with my spouse - who also is gold - as long as our tickets are connected we won't get upgraded. Any information on this? Thanks.

United flight number?

Seems clear that flights on United metal with US flight numbers wont qualify. I'm finding trips much cheaper booked through United that fly as US codeshares -- US metal with a United flight number. Anyone with experience on one of these able to say if it does or doesn't qualify?

I'm doing about the same but criss/cross on Saturday - BOS-PHX-OAK and back for $270 and about the exact same number of miles. Happily upgrades cleared on all segments.

It's my understanding that a lot of travel agencies ticket flights the day after booking - which may well have worked in your favor here.
