Had the same thing and they took away the 90k points
I guess sometimes it really is too good to be true?
Hopefully there will be a successful class action lawsuit, not because we're entitled to the points but of the sneaky way they're dealing with it.

Acc to the t&c if Iberia gives you a refund without requesting you may be able to sue them and end up w the points and not have to pay for flights. The clawback provision was for if you requested a refund

Sorry excuse for an airline.

That was my experience with them dating back to pre Dan's Deals days. (Back in the 90s the had some kind of an error fare where JFK-MAD-TLV was pricing in the low $400s if the TLV-MAD segment was booked in J. The flight experience TLV-MAD was terrible. Lights stayed on, no IFE, no snacks, flight attendants didn't show up when called. They did provide a hotel for overnight connection, but on the return TLV-MAD the check-in agents refused to issue J boarding passes and put anyone that had such a ticket in Y).
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

If it wasn't for all the blog coverage and confirmations by IB I would have ignored it.
Oh well.

How widespread are the issues? Have many people gotten clawbacks?

Hopefully there will not be a need to edit my vote  :)
