    I used to see miles post the next day... now it seems like it's taking two days. Anyone else seeing this?

    Note: This is still better than the week+ it takes for AA/DL flights to post to AS.

    I haven't noticed an issue. Generally my flights that are early in the day post by 11:00 PDT and if the arrival/departure are later then they post the next day. My AS flights have taken a few days.

    Lately my AS flights just never post period. The troublesome part is that AAdvantage always requests a copy of BP faxed over to them.

    Heh... so my AA flights are taking a day longer, your AS flights posting to AA aren't posting at all, and my AA/DL flights that post to AS are taking a week. Do we have enough variables here?

    Out of curiosity, do you see your AA# on your AS boarding pass (as in, is it printed on there)?

    Yep, I always double check that it's intact, to ensure MVP check-in/boarding.

    My AA flight invariable post within a day, usually less. IB and BA often take a couple fo days, sometimes more while CX and QF both tend to take four or five days for me. I have no recent experience with other OW posting.

    It seems like AS posts the partner activity about once a week - I imagine big computer reels of tape data coming over :eek:

    Sometimes but not always.... I'm used to the late-night flights taking an extra day.

    You're not the only one!

    I've also been experiencing the 2 day posting instead of the quasi-recent change to the 1 day posting which I had been accustomed to.

    Correction:

    The miles for AS flights I took on 6/24 just posted overnight :eek: I was actually just about to harass them via fax this morning.

    Mike Reed - please note that miles earned through partner airlines can take up to 30 days to post to your account. If it takes longer, please let us know!

    Thanks, AA, but the comment was about AA flights. The second sentence referenced partner flights, which I expect take longer to post.

    I appreciate you skimming my question, though.
