More Americans are starting to board planes again after the coronavirus pandemic disrupted the airline industry for months.

Chances are, if you were planning on flying earlier this year, your flight got canceled or your plans were changed. You likely got an e-credit from the airline, which can be used for a future flight.

Experts say airlines are being kept flexible with both e-credits and ticket prices, but you should keep up to date with their policies.

"Some of them are giving you up to two years to use this e credit toward a future flight. So just really, you know, get to do a little bit of your own homework here to make sure that you use it before it expires, and that sometimes means flying before the end of the expiration date, not just redeeming it," explained Ben Mutzabaugh, senior aviation editor with The Points Guy.
