COVID-19 & Expiring Asia Miles

Have some AM due to expire in October and I'm not interested in redeeming any of their merchandises.

Heard from a friend where he booked a flight back in Feb/Mar and was subsequently cancel by CX. And he got the AM redeposited back into his account with a NEW one-year expiry. Ideally that would be my best outcome. However there's been lots of changes to the flexibility of AM / revenue ticket's refunds and different rules for when it was issued. In short, does anyone know if this trick will still work?

Worse case, I guess I can use it to redeem something for Oct 2021.

I am in a similar boat in having miles expiring this month. I will probably be making a booking HKG-LHR one-way for July 2021, but not in anticipation of Cathay eventually cancelling. If in the event I wanted to re-schedule that flight I would expect to pay a financial supplement. Not sure the new points expiry date if me making a final cancellation or additional payments.
