Firstly, many thanks for reading this -- I do appreciate it. Do any IFers have any experience of cancelling CX award tickets booked via the Asiamiles website? Specifically (if yes): 1. How long does it take it for Asiamiles to be re-credited to your account after you have cancelled an award redemption on the Cathay website? 2. In terms of any refund due -- I originally paid HKD 2,730.00 in carrier surcharges/taxes, which I hope I would be due a refund of with any forthcoming cancellation? -- would a refund be automatically refunded to the original credit card? (I am a bit confused, you see, whether this is an automatic process or whether, in fact, after cancelling my ticket on the Cathay website I would also have to call a CX contact center about recouping this HKD 2,730.00 amount? As I would be needing to cancel my partner's ticket -- which is a birthday surprise booked via her Asiamiles account but which she hasn't seen the booking confirmation for -- as well as my own, then any mandatory call center contact would prove very awkward indeed, hence the hope for an automatic refund!) 3. Does CX levy a fee for any cancellations? Any help at all would be ever so gratefully received! Many thanks again for reading!
