Don't think there's anything he can do about it now but you can call QF after to get the points refunded IINM.

Lol. That would be obvious, know ? I mean I didnít fly J, Iím not paying for it. Whatís the Isrealy law about compensation in this situation ? I see that thereís another thread about this so I really shouldnít be posting here anymore... can merge this thread.

No, you can't always get the miles back.

I dont have first hand knowledge when bumped to PE, but in the past when they pumped to Y, they usually documented the record and it entitled you to a free round trip voucher in J

Besides this story and the story I wrote about last week, I was personally bumped last weekend JFK-TLV. I was very lucky when a old lady canceled after check in in the airport last second because she didn't feel well.

@Dan is it worth a post on the MS demanding answer front elal why they "officially" do this. And why no comp..
