You are wanting there points back, right? I was able to get points back for a flight I cancelled even though it took off. Try emailing them and then wait a few weeks. They said it could take 21 business days for response, but it was faster.
I'm still waiting for the points from a different reservation that was cancelled via SMS last month. Just looking for current info. I will try emailing  them.

Still waiting. Does this have to do with ELAL not refunding Qantas? Or is this on Qantas

Qantas
Did you request the refund on Qantas?
It took a while until my points posted as well, but eventually it posted.

Call again. My ticket from March had expired and not been refunded even though I had taken care of it via sms.

I don’t see online that I won’t be charged a fee.

I have a booking that one leg was canceled, online it says that I might be charged the standard 6k fee, I don’t want to cancel and then have to fight out a refund.

Can anyone pls share an experience?
