    redemption rules, expiration schemes

    I"m not quite sure what the following in red means. Would you please explain what they are?

    Frequent flyer programs have two major flaws...... Travelers are suspicious of the programs because of the restrictive redemption rules and expiration schemes, and the airlines are wary because the programs represent accumulating liability against future profits by committing to provide more and more complimentary seats on future flights.

    Thank you.

    It's hard to redeem your points: to actually trade your points in for a ticket.

    The points expire before you can accumulate enough to be used.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
