    Super quick question:

    I was moved to an AF flight right before my CDG-EWR was canceled.

    I don't think that it will actually post without my request. So far it's been a bit short of 30 days since the flight.

    How long should I wait before requesting the mileage?

    You have to wait 2 weeks before you can submit a mileage request, so you're good to request it now. I just submitted a missing mileage request last Thursday and it was credited today.

    Make sure you're asking for Original Routing Credit, and not just missing mileage, as using the wrong term might slow things down.
