    Perhaps this is related to the IT systems of United and CO needing more work to become integrated, but in the past when I've flown a United flight booked on United.com, the flight credits are posted to my MP account consistently within 24 hours or so.

    On a recent itinerary where I booked United flights on CO.com (and used my MPN) it has been 48+ hours and counting and nothing has shown up yet on my MP account.

    Is this normal?

    Yes, this is normal, as there are currently no linkages between the systems beyond the standard alliance links. Thus Continental sends a batch file to Mileage Plus, which then updates it in the system.

    As a point of reference it generally takes 48 -72 hours to post anything to OnePass. Doesn't matter if it's a CO, UA, or US flight.

    Correct - closer to 48 for CO and 72 for partners IME.

    I actually have noticed this, co.com bookings are 2-4 days, united.com bookings never more than 2 days.

    Ok. Thanks all for the sanity check.
