Successful credit card chargeback on cancelled flight

I have successfully got a credit card chargeback on a flight cancelled between KL and Hong Kong. The credit arrived on my card a week ago - how long do Malaysia have to appeal and claim the money back? My flight was cancelled and I have been moved onto a flight the following day (I have not accepted the change online). Am I liable to any penalties when I don’t show up? Thank you

Now that you've successfully reclaimed your money (congrats!), if you turn up for the flight - I'd call that fraud.

Your flight was cancelled and you have received a refund via chargeback. You no longer have a ticket. There is nothing to accept other than a change in your reservation, but that is not backed up by a ticket.

I don't know if Malaysia will intervene but I think MH, being the merchant, has 30 days or so depending on the payment processor.

Be careful. There have been reported cases in FT and other blogs that the airline would challenge the chargeback against the credit card company, who eventually reversed the chargeback against the cardholder.
