Award Cancelled - expired miles?

Hi.-

I have issed 3 business award tickets from MVD to MIA flying with AA but with AsiaMiles. The flight is for June 3rd with return 15 of June.
I booked the award ticket on September because miles expiration date was october.

What happen if I cancel my tickets and ask to miles get returned? will return ? or will not because they are "expired"?

Sorry for my bad english.

thanks in advance

I believe others here have mentioned that miles get another 3 years when re-deposited, but I don't have any first-hand experience myself.

No longer Gone: Trick to extend Asiamiles for $120/12K AM

Only to next expiry (max 12 months)

Perhaps it would be safest to call AsiaMiles and ask? It cannot do any harm (Can it?) and you should get a reliable answer from them...

We probably know more than 80-90% of call centre agents these days.

As per their profile OP is a CX DM, so at least they should have access to the best of the call centre staff... But fair point otherwise!

Simply one year isnt too correct.

In my experience, it is the next upcoming miles expiration date (end of a month).

For example,
Your annual mileage expiration month is July?so your next upcoming miles expiration date is 31 July 2018.

a) if you refund your miles today (13/14 Jan 2018) , the miles will expire on 31 July 2018.

b) if you refund your miles on 1 July 2018, you whole amount will still expire on 31 July 2018.
