I am planning to do something similar but wanted to know how long does it take for the miles to get credited back to the account on a cancelled redemption tic?I might need to waitlist F but have never done it before.
Are these correct?
- Waitlist F
- Book confirmed J
- if it clears, cancel J paying $75 fee
- Confirm F
Reason I ask is I only have enough points to redeem one set of flights so I am relying on the points being returned to my account fairly quickly to confirm my waitlisted flights.
