Is it just me or are BA Avios the slowest to post of any airline?

    It just seems like they take forever, like months, to hit once you buy through the partners, online store, etc. Even the credit card seems slow to post points compared to other airlines.

    My experience has been different. My chase points post right after every billing statement. And any miles from oneworld partners post as soon as the flight is complete. No issues.

    I haven't had problems with the flights but from other partners they seem really slow on my end. Maybe just bad luck on my part.

    When I buy things through their online mall, the Avios take a while to post. Same when I buy things through VS's online mall. Other partners seem to post with a reasonable degree of speed.

    I guess you're not a United Mileage Plus member? They take the cake on taking long for miles to register. Own flights can take up to 6 days (last week I had a flight on Tuesday that registered on Saturday), I had 4 LH flights in mid November, they took over a month to post

    Flew LHR-LAX a couple of years ago. When I checked my BAEC account later the same evening, the miles had posted ;)

    The estore takes a while - I think a month - to make sure you haven't had a refund.
