Flying while pregnant

I have a couple of questions in regards to a woman who spends a lot of time in the air becoming pregnant.

And by "spends a lot of time in the air" I don't mean she's a flight attendant or anything, I mean she does a lot of open-air travel on a flying critter -- like a Dinotopian Skybax rider or a Pernese dragonrider.

Assuming she rides said flying critter sitting up and not laying on her belly, and riding said flying critter doesn't normally cause a whole lot of being jostled about, at what point should she stop flying?

Also, would spending a lot of time at high altitudes have any effect on the pregnancy or the baby itself? Or, since she's flying in the open air, would she not even be able to get high up enough for it even to be a factor?

Thanks, everybody. :)
