Flew MH Business. Jakarta London and return in January this year .. Malaysia credited the outward leg with the points and credits to my Qantas FF but did not credit the return leg. Upon claiming the missing points Malaysian have twice rejected the claim.
It seems quite puzzling, the travel dates are correct and cabin class was valid. Unfortunately no longer have boarding passes so have asked MH for a confirmation of travel letter which I doubt they will providebut will wait and see. Does anyone have any ideas?
The problem is sneaky behaviour like this by one member of the oneworld alliance detracts from the attractiveness of one world as a whole,

I had a flight in Finnair J from HEL-SIN (which also exists as a QF codeshare) rejected twice. Contacted the QF call center and the Phillipino staff were incredibly unhelpful, after sending a formal complaint through I eventually got some traction and status credits were sent through promptly. Someone from the Products and Services division called up to explain that the Qantas stat cred team are easily confused with all the various earn rates and fare rules.
Qantas are saying I must give them copies of the boarding passes which went in the bin long ago. It is inconceivable in this day and age that MH have no record of the travel.

I've learnt after having problems with LAN within South America not crediting points and credits a few time is to always take a photo of my boarding passes, even extend this to AA these days even though they're pretty good.

If you check the likes of AFF, you will find that this isn't limited to MH. AY is another that QF tend to have troubles posting, so perhaps it is something within the QFF systems that is the issue, and not MH?
Would the relevant flights be booked in Z class by any chance?
It’s definitely a Qantas problem, and appears to revolve around the team that look after the loyalty program crediting from partner airlines. My friends and I are also experiencing some issues with Jetstar crediting!

Forgive me if you've already tried this, but your original booking email should have a ticket number (13 Numbers)

I think the issue is within Qantas. I have had the same problem with getting credits for Finnair, Jetstar (?) and JAL flights. Each time the only answer was to lodge a complaint. The call center used by Qantas was very rude and always took a defensive stance instead of trying to fix the problem.

I had a similar problem (albeit only in economy, so I let it go)... The outward leg got credited, but the return leg did not. after several inquiries with Qantas customer service, they eventually gave me the explanation (allegedly advice received from Malaysian) that the fare I had booked was too cheap and therefore not eligible for points (which makes no sense, given they credited the outward journey). Sounds like good advice to keep records of boarding passes. I feel a bit surprised that Qantas have not attempted to address this issue
Ditto, have had the same problem with Malaysian as everybody else which is why I simply don't use them for any European long haul anymore.
