If you were fit and healthy would you be ok to travel in Europe on a 2 hour flight?

Would you even be allowed to?
And no I wouldn't want to.

No, I went from nothing to giving birth within four hours with my second child, is this your first?

You won't be allowed. You can only fly at 36 weeks with a Drs note.

No. You wouldn't be allowed to either.

No, and the airline wouldn't let you either

No way. But then I wouldn't have been able to even if the airlines let me as my DC were 36 & 39 weeks. 2nd one arrived after only 45 minutes of active labour, so there is no way I would risk a flight. Even the airline recommendations seem a little tight for me grin

There is no airline who will let you!

Not a chance.

I flew at 38 with no drs note or anything.

But 40, I don't know. Where is the person going and for how long, etc.

toffeeboffin Thu 11-Feb-16 17:29:17

No way.

deepdarkwood Thu 11-Feb-16 17:29:19

No. But then I had already had my baby for 4 weeks at 40 weeks...

toffeeboffin Thu 11-Feb-16 17:29:54

Unless you are in an emergency situation i.e. War zone then no.

ZiggyFartdust Thu 11-Feb-16 17:32:06

Unless you forge the fit to fly letter or have a very tiny bump you wouldn't even get on the flight. And your insurance wouldn't cover you because you would have put yourself outside the standard rules.

I wouldn't, no.

No. They won't let you.

KitKat1985 Thu 11-Feb-16 18:59:54

No way would I want to and I'd be amazed if you would find an airline willing to let you anyway.

BumWad Thu 11-Feb-16 19:00:36

No way!

Girlfriend36 Thu 11-Feb-16 19:02:01

No ridiculous to even contemplate it imo!!

Whatdoidohelp Thu 11-Feb-16 19:06:03

Flying at 40 weeks? Don't be ridiculous.

Tell us why you need to please.

No airline will fly you even short haul that far on.

If you are chartering a private plane, then you would still need to declare it but might find a company who would take you at your own risk and expense.
