Nope they won't allow 3rd trimester flying
How are they going to know you are in your third trimester?
Most wont. Call the specific airline you would use and ask them what their policy is. Some will allow you to fly with a doctor's note...others will just flat-out say no.
it depends on the airline. Some require Dr note and some just won't allow it flat out. You should call the airline before buying a ticket to find out. I have seen women who were clearly in their 3rd trimester on airplanes before.
You can fly on commercial airlines without restriction during your first and second trimesters, but during your third trimester you may run into some restrictions.
All airlines recommend that you consult your doctor before traveling at any point in your pregnancy. Play it safe by getting a "permission-to-travel" letter from your healthcare provider.
You won't – and shouldn't – get one if your pregnancy is considered high-risk.
Take your due date into consideration for the return trip, too. And before you plan a cross-country or international flight, remember how you'll feel squeezed into a seat for hours.

Only a few airlines have specific policies, but definitely clear it with your doctor first.
Flying after 32 weeks is generally considered a bad idea.
I dont know of any airline that allows women to fly in their last trimester without Drs written consent, most Drs dont recommend it either, 37 weeks is considered full term so I dont know how her dr would feel about that.
