  • Not without a doctor's note. Even if your doctor says you can, which it is fine for most women to, the airline will not let you on the aircraft without a doctor's note. That means a fully headed letter from the doctor's office saying you (stating your name) is allowed to fly.

  • No you can not fly after 7 months for the fact if the pressure buildup. you can go into birth on board...
