I received this email a few days ago
 
Hi – I’ve just had a terrible experience with EasyJet (which I assume is the airline you refer to in your blog about the F2F certs). They allowed us to board on the way out with a doctor’s letter from 3 weeks previous to the date of our flight, but on the way back denied us boarding, as the letter was ‘out of date’.

Nowhere on their terms and conditions have I been able to find anything to suggest that there was a time-limit for such letters/certs. You refer to a 5 day rule, but I haven’t been able to find that anywhere. Can you point me in the direction of this ‘rule’?

I followed the link I had provided in the relevant post, and soon found that EasyJet have changed their policy and now the low-cost airline are demanding the professional be more specific – 

“When travelling between 28 – 35 (inclusive) weeks a medical certificate issued by a doctor or midwife confirming the number of weeks of pregnancy is required confirming that the passenger is fit to fly. It is important that the certificate covers the date (dates) of your travel.”

Well, as a result I can confidently assure any of my women who are travelling with EasyJet that I wil be unable to provide a cerificate which will be accepted by that airline. I am happy to provide a letter which states that, in my opinion, on the day I examined the pregnant woman she was fit to fly. I will never, ever provide a letter or certificate which says that 2 weeks after I have seen a woman, and following what may be a hectic, tummy bug filled holiday, the situation will remain the same and she will still be fit to fly. In fact, my advice will be to fly with a different airline!
