How Late Can I Cancel a BD Award Ticket

My father is due to travel using a BD award ticket on Thai this week using my miles, but is feeling unwell so may have to cancel. He may have to make a decision on the day of travel (he has an evening flight) if that is possible.

How late can he leave it and cancel, so I still receive all miles, taxes and surcharges back?

After a painful call to BA, and being passed around a couple of CSA with long periods of holding (35 mins), apparently it's 24 hours.

Maybe useful to someone in the future

If it's this week, then you can still call bmi DC to cancel the tickets; in which case surely it's up to any time before departure.

Did you get all your taxes back ?

What is with the miles ? Did they convert it into avios ?

As I mentioned earlier, BA told me to cancel 24 hours for a refund with a BD award ticket.

In the end my father was well enough to travel, and is now sitting on a beach in southern Thailand
