    Due to weather delays in Europe, LH rerouted me to omit an originally-booked segment on a UA ticket. They may have reissued the original ticket. Will UA credit the missing segment to Mileage Plus?

    Officially, no. You can always call and ask but the rule is that if the new routing earns directly in MileagePlus then that's al you are entitled to.

    So a different protocol than UA metal flights that were missed?

    AFAIK it is the same protocol. If your new itinerary earns points natively then you are not officially entitled to original routing credit.
