    Is it just me or has the time between taking a flight and seeing the miles posted increased? I flew last Wednesday and Friday and thought I might have seen the miles from Wednesday by now, but so far no joy. Am I just too impatient, or has anyone else noticed the same thing?

    My BOS-YYZ and YYZ-FRA flights from last Wednesday haven't posted either. Hmm - usually they show up on day 4 - so yes you are being impatient, but yes you have noticed something.

    Isn't AE transitioning to a new platform? That might account for the delays as they work out the bugs

    Yes, they are implementing a new platform, but it's not obvious to me how that would slow the posting of miles. At any rate, as long as the miles get posted it's all good.

    Meantime, it now takes me three clicks instead of one to sign in. I guess that's what we call an improvement.

    Improvement? Downright enhancement, more like.

    For those of us of sufficient age to recall the national Participaction movement (a physical-fitness programme in Canadian schools), perhaps the increase in the number of mouse-clicks is intended to treble our chances of receiving a red Participaction ribbon for finger-dexterity.

    It's always seemed to me as if posting of miles was slower and slower as I approached one of my status-threshold points. Arguably, delayed entry of AQM/AQS could act to delay the commencement of the slightly-higher fulfilment costs associated with higher Altitude status. Of course, such a consideration would imply that AC and Aimia had coordinated their interests, which seem (at a minimum...) rather implausible.

    Enjoy the day as found!

    Miles for both segments (Wednesday and Friday) posted today.

    Crossed a threshold, too, so there should be some more eUpgrade certificates, which I imagine will take another day or two.

    Interesting. My last Wednesday and Thursday miles posted today but not my Friday miles.

    I demand better since I am a SE2MM and should be first to get my miles posted. LOL
