How long do BA and Finnair flights take to credit to Qantas?

Currently sitting at two weeks for me, nothing credited. My Qantas number was linked to the booking and on both boarding passes. Thank you.

Finnair often has taken more than a month. You may need to lodge a claim if your points & credits seem to have disappeared.

For me if they haven't posted within a week then be prepared for it to take months and you should probably send in a claim and then follow up by emails when you hear nothing from that in the 14 days they say it will take. They'll then ask you to send copies of the boarding pass and/or etickets for it to be manually credited.

I have found AY IT in some respects to be worse than QF (yes really) but, specifically in relation to QFF SCs and points, my experience has been that they do post eventually after 3-4 weeks without having to chase up. BA has been generally quicker. Must qualify that advice by conceding it is mostly based on pre-pandemic flights. There is plenty of evidence, though, that AY’s IT continues to be dreadful (refer relevant current threads on FT) so crediting to OW partner FFPs may actually have deteriorated further.

I'm not sure is AY IT in itself is particularly bad but their links / integration to the OW alliance have been awful for 10+ years. At one point, even getting them ticketed into e.g. a QF ticket needed an agent and some patient work from them. It seems to be getting better gradually.

I‘ve never had a problem with AY. Usually post within a week or so but it’s been a while.

My BA flight from LHR to BER earlier this week posted after about 3 days.

The online claim should catch the missing ones fairly quickly.

I’m still waiting on a BA flight I took to Stockholm 4 weeks ago - have just lodged an online claim so let’s see!

My fiance is waiting for 5 different JAL flights over the past 4 weeks to credit. As recently as March 2020 JL was posting batches every second Tuesday.

With the number of partners that aren't crediting correctly you've got to wonder whether the issue is on QF's end.

I switched over to BAEC at end of last year and all of my QF flights so far have required me to chase it up with BA as 3-4 weeks later they still hadn’t credited. After submitting requests they were usually credited 1-2 days later. I don’t know who is to blame. Haven’t flown with any other OW airlines to compare yet

As a data point, my Finnair (AY) and JAL credits came through automagically in 5-10 days. Compared to other experiences in this thread I seem to be lucky but it shows that a decent crediting time is technically possible. If it's of any worth, the flights were ticketed by those airlines, respectively (i.e two separate tickets, one for SYD-HEL, separate ticket for the GOT flights).

My two BA flights in April and May got credited 5 days later. The QFF award one got credited with 0 - 0. Never had an issue in the past with BA.
