The State of Israel says even if we fly to Israel for our ** day trip, we will be quarantined for ** days, making the trip futile.*************Here is what my Travel Agent wrote:**UA is issuing you three electronic travel certificates (ETC’s), each in the amount of your respective tickets, so $****.** x *.*-you have the option to use them on any UA or United Express flights, domestic or international (must be on UA or United Express only, not their partner airlines such as Lufthansa for example), for any amount until the certificates have a zero balance.*-anyone can use them. So the three of you could each use them, any family member could use them, or you and Nereida could opt to use them, it doesn’t matter.*-thus you have a total certificate value of $****.** with UA to be used any way you (or anyone else you give them to) want until the balance reaches “*”.
