    My wifes flights SYD-BKK-SYD on BA havent shown up on her AA account. I checked my expedia booking and thought I had a typo/transposition in the AA number used - but as I typed up my post I rechecked and found it was ok. Just dont know why the points havent posted (mine have).

    I was going to try and claim the points online but dont have the ticket number that AA require for online claims - so I think I need to call AA. I also cant currently find her Boarding passes.

    First flight was 27/10 and second was 3/10 so I might have a look round at home for the BPs (I know I had one of them in my bag when I was in Cyprus) and do it all whilst in Singapore next week when I have a few mins down time.

    Not sure how I can get round the ticket number problem though...

    It will be listed on the e-ticket receipt that you should have received via email.

    It should have been but it wasnt (dont know why and I didnt check for it as I never think about it with etickets. Having logged back in to expedia it shows this on the itinerary:

    Expedia.com.au itinerary number: 1003660897
    Airline ticket number(s): Check back in 24 hours
    British Airways confirmation code: A3N2NE

    and on the emailed receipt it shows this:

    Expedia.com.au itinerary number: 1003660897
    Expedia.com.au booking ID: YKAD7S (7)

    I am emailing expedia for the information. If they get back to me in the next couple of days I can claim both flights for mrssimongr - then I can steal her points ;)

    S


    Edit

    Just got off phone with BA (Expedia couldnt help at all) and they are trying to retrieve the booking through a "purge PNR" and told me to call back on Monday - we shall see...

    Yes - wow this is a long time ago - how many flights since this :)

    BA were very helpful and after a couple of attempts were able to give me the info I need. Points posted and she is Platinum - no flights since then though ... not sure what to do with the 17 K points in her account...

    Heh.. reason I picked up on it, I flew J BME-PER and nothing was credited to either FF or AA (had AA number on the booking, and flight in Y PER-BME has already credited) - so figured when the check-in agent upgraded me to J, my AA number was removed altogether...

    What's the best way to chase up the flight? I've got a PDF of my BP that I scanned in..

    I would advise waiting the 15 days and then doing it online if you have the eticket number. It was very quick after that for me - credited in a couple of days at most I think.

    If you dont have the eticket number - I would advise calling whoever you flew with and see if they can give it to you - sooner rather than later :)

    Good luck :)
