Exclamation Help restore expired Skyward miles

Hello members

I just realized that about 11500 Skyward miles got expired in 2016. I was still new to the miles concept back then. Is there anyway I can work with Emirates to restore them back to my account?

Please let me know.

Thanks

No, they expire after around 3 years. There's nothing you could have done to stop them expiring - other than using them.

And to be honest, 11500 points wouldn't get you very much anyway.

Yes, expire on rolling basis even if you are top tier and keep flying yearly, does not change anything about miles not expiring, unlike some other programs..
Im not sure if 11,500 points is worth nothing. What is DXB - DOH required miles for Upgrade? 30 K minimum ?

Infinity miles might be enough to convince EK to fly you to DOH in J
