Before I was discsonnected (yet again) they did say I had been issues a travel credit. Whether this is the same as a cancellation I’m not sure. If a cancellation means points back in my account in a day or two, giving me the freedo to rebook online that would be perfect.If you cancelled FF flights the points will likely be back in your account in a day or two. I did this twice for our trip.
However the $500 (or whatever you paid) for taxes and fees will take months to refund.
My sister wants a Europe trip and I just checked March, lots available. e.g. EK to MXP, business. Easy 25 hr flight incl 2 hrs in Dubai.
I can live without the cash for the moment but not the points. If they come back in a day or two that would be perfect.
Btw I went to Bris airport to see ticketing. They have been removed and not coming back.
