Credit for AA miles Flown Before AA Registration
« on: June 10, 2010, 11:09:58 AM »
Anyone know what AA's rule is for getting miles credit after a flight if the guy was not registered at the time of travel?

Thanks.

From the AA site;
       

"Note: Mileage credit requests can be submitted no earlier than 15 days after all travel is completed.
Use this form to request mileage for flights flown:
Within the last 12 months as long as you were enrolled in the AAdvantage program at the time of your flights "

Doesnt seem like it but maybe someone elso knows a way around it...

 each carrier has its own T&Cs but most allow for retro credit, after all they are always telling people on the flight about the programs and to sign up and keep your BPs and send them in for credit from todays flight

 I just dont know how far back they will allow for retro credit, surely if it was within the past 30 days

Good point. Even though it's clear from the terms that they dont do it.

The flight was Pesach time.

 on an AA flight or a partner of AA.If a partner then maybe less of a chance of getting any credit, if it was code-share flight with an AA flight # and tkt stock a btter chance. Now Pesach was over 60 days ago so I have no idea why not give AA a call and report back so others can know as well

 if the BA flight was into or out of the US You can NOT get any AA credit for it, and vice versa no BA credit for AA flights into/outof the US

AA and BA are not allowed to be partners by law for redeeming or earning on transatlantic flights to/from the US.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Called AA. They said they can only give credit up to 30 days ago if if there was no account while flying. If there was an account they go back 12 months.  :-[

I signed up someone to aa (to save future questions did it for him cause he doesn't speak english)and the rep told me she can credit him back for a flight from april but not before which is about 90 days.
