Is it safe to travel on airplane with pneumonia?
it is only safe if your doctor tells you it is, it might be safe for you but it wont be safe for people around you because the germs are in the air for a however long the journey is, but mostly it depends on what your doctor says, so the best thing would be to see your doctor/gp.

From 28,000 to 33,000 feet.
you should go next to your cat not to be sceard
Generally, yes. Aircraft don't have a "path to ground", so there is no particular attraction of lightning to aircraft. However, lightning does occasionally strike aircraft, a…nd sometimes causes some damage to the fuselage of the plane. While flying a routine patrol mission over the north Pacific ocean, our US Navy P-3 Orion patrol aircraft was struck by lightning, which fried our aircraft's radar system and sent a ball of "ball lightning" bouncing down the aisle to the tail. Quite impressive, and it caused some costly damage, but no injuries.
Pneumonia and its slightly lesser cousin bronchitis are airborne infections. You should not get on an enclosed plane with hundreds of other people when you have either of th…ese. It's bad for you, can exacerbate these conditions because you are flying at high altitude and that is not good for respitory conditions. It can also lengthen the time it will take you to recover; it can even cause potentially life threatening problems which would not be good. Equally important is that flying would be very selfish thing because it would be potentially dangerous for every person you are around. Both pneumonia and bronchitis are both serious illnesses that no one wants to catch and can lead to death of an older or weak fellow passenger. Most airlines have refund policies for medical cases; you should check into it.
It depends on what is causing your sickness. If it is an infection, and/or you have a fever, then you should wait until the fever subsides and all acute symptoms of infection …are gone. The best answer for you will come from your own health care professional, what might be safe for another person may not be safe for you, so contact your doctor to get an answer that is individualized for you and your specific illness.
Answer: Probably. The FAA mandates very strict guidelines pertaining to the operation, maintenance and repair of all aircraft, including privately owned and operated a…ircraft. So long as these laws are followed to the letter the aircraft should be perfectly safe to fly in. That being said, there are private aircraft owners out there who do skirt the regulations. However it is very uncommon. If there is any doubt, check it out. The tail number of any aircraft can be looked up online to find out who the owner is, and you can then research or even contact that owner to ask questions. Also all aircraft should have the FAA-issued Airworthiness certificate displayed somewhere in the cockpit, ask the pilot for it and make sure it is up-to-date. Airworthiness certificates cannot be issued to aircraft which have not been properly maintained and documented. Even airliners must have this Airworthiness certificate. Ask to see it, and if its not available, dont fly with them! Additionally, most pilots are very familiar with people who are reluctant to fly. Discuss your misgivings with them and most will be perfectly happy to walk you through the preflight inspection and/or discuss the history of the aircraft youll be flying in.
The first president to fly in an airplane while in office was Calvin Coolidge in 1933. ? ?The first ex-president to fly in an airplane was Theodore Roosevelt, who flew as a pa…ssenger in a 4-minute flight in one of the early Wright biplanes on October 11, 1910, a year after he had left office. Theodore Roosevelt rode on a very short flight with the Wright brothers. The first sitting US president to fly in an air plane was Franklin Roosevelt. Theodore Roosevelt flew in a plane soon after he left office, so you can say he was the first ex-president who flew in an airplane. You can find reports that Calvin Coolidge took a plane ride while he was in office, but these reports can not be verified.
Commercial jets usually fly at 10,000 metres. How high can planes fly? It gets technical: A manned air-breathing jet aircraft following an uncontrolled b…allistic trajectory reached 37,650 metres (123,523 feet). A manned air-breathing jet aircraft in controlled horizontal flight flew at 25,929 m (85,069 ft).
Children ages 5-7 years can only fly on nonstop or direct flights with no change of planes. * Children ages 8-14 years can fly on nonstop or connecting flights, but may not …connect to other airlines, with the exception of Delta Connection carriers (excluding AA Eagle) and Air France. * Children 15-17 are not required to have unaccompanied service but we will provide it when requested. * An unaccompanied child can not be booked on the last connecting flight of the evening. This is to prevent the need for an overnight stay in a hotel.
Yes, but it is highly recommended that you fly with your bird in the cabin.
Your ears pop in planes because the air high above the surface of earth is less dense than air near the surface has all the air above it pushing it down.
Yes. Statistically speaking it is the safest mode of common travel.
The air pressure in the cabin of the airplane changes slightly as it goes up and down, just as the air pressure in a car changes when it drives up into the mountains or ba…ck down towards the beach. The changes set up different pressures on the inside and outside of the eardrum, making the ears feel "stuffed" and interfering with hearing. In most people, the eustachian tubes (small tubes inside the head that connect the middle ear with the mouth and nose) open from time to time to let air in or out of the middle ear, which equalizes the pressure and produces a popping sound. However, in some people, these tubes refuse to open, and then the pressure builds up and produces pain in the ears. In the worst case, the eardrums may rupture, but usually it just produces severe pain. This condition is called ear block. It's not a health risk (unless it's bad enough to rupture the eardrum), but it's not pleasant. It is often worse on the way down than it was on the way up. You can help avoid it by pinching your nose shut, closing your mouth, exhaling into your mouth and nose, and then swallowing. This tends to open the eustachian tubes to equalize the pressure. If you have problems every time you fly, ask your doctor about it. There may be something he can do to fix the problem. Sometimes taking a decongestant before a flight helps, but usually only if the problem is due to a cold or flu.
Flying with walking pneumonia can cause complications with other passengers. The walking pneumonia can be contagious. Also, flying high and for an extended amount of time elim…inates a way to receive medical treatment or relief if needed.
in your luggage you can but on a carry on bag.
Yes, it should be safe to travel by airplane with an ankle fracture however, if possible it might be sensible to have a companion travel with you to help with luggage. It …might be worth checking with your doctor to see if he or she recommends you to travel or not.
Yes. However, from the security requirements you may be required to place the device in a solid container and this will be situated in the cargo area. As you'll be travell…ing with two different airlines and therefore potential long haul it would be expedient to check with both carriers and currently there has been a number of security alerts across some of the European air spaces. /
