Any way to change where airline miles were credited
« on: November 15, 2017, 08:26:27 AM »
I credited a flight to Mileage Plus but now I want to instead credit to Aeroplan. Any way to change after the fact?

(I assume not, but can't hurt to ask)

Shucks. Wouldv'e gotten to Elite 35K this year (3*70 lb. bags). Flight in June which I credited to UA, not realizing I would start flying frequently. 5500 miles short

maybe try emailing/writing formal letter to both programs and have the senior folks look at it... doesnt hurt to try next level stuff sometimes.

Didn't end up doing though.

prob better to look for a corporate address or something. your max exposure will be the 2 stamps which youve probably gotten for cheap on previous DD site

Regular customer service turned me down. I also previously wrote to a couple of the email addresses listed here with no response http://www.elliott.org/company-contacts/air-canada/
I guess I should write a paper letter...
