My flight was delayed 2.5 hours last night due to mechanical issues. Will I have any luck getting free miles if I call in? (I don’t have status with the airline I was flying.)

Here’s my routine, if it’s delayed >2 hrs I’ll call American’s HD and say, “I’m terribly sorry but I missed the announcement. Is the flight delayed, flight ####. Oh that’s a shame. One question, generally I see my account credited with miles when delays are more than 2 hrs. Will that show up this evening?” This year alone I’ve probably banked 100k free miles on this. Usually 15k a pop.

I flew Delta before this and have never been delayed for non-weather issues, so I’ve never had a reason to ask for miles before. Switching to AA was the worst.

Delta always gives me miles but I'm a member. Make sure you sign up to those loyalty programs!!
