@Jo 08701 what happened in the end?

Due to covid restrictions I wasnt able to fly to that destination, so I can't report back if I would have gotten the miles.

In a side note, I realized that although it used to make sense to rather use the pay with miles option by delta vs booking awards, (when price is in the same range as 1 mile = 1cent) however, it's much more convenient to cancel an award than a pay with miles, by pay with miles you get a voucher, by awards it gets deposit back right away.
