    I had some miles expire a few months ago, they were with air France flying blue from back in the day when u could transfer Amex points.

    Anybody had previous success in getting back expired miles?

    Look around and search the AF flying Blue website. DL has been letting people get back their recently expired miles for a fee.

    Found this on Google is a useful tool...the link below (and linked threads from there) may be useful. ;)

    Almost 300k miles expired

    Good luck recovering your miles!

    The same thing happened to me many years ago, when I went from status to nobody. Now I fly from time to time with them, when it's convenient, that is to say no more than once a year, and I know I will loose the miles. They are sadly not my preferred airline anymore.

    This is a sad waste when it is allowed to happen. Luckily a friend identified a solution for miles utilisation which were close to this stage, which once got me out of trouble just in time.
