Diagnosed with acute bronchitis. Is it safe to travel by air?

My aunt is 86 and basically in pretty good health except within the last few weeks she s been diagnosed with acute bronchitis . She plans on flying from Florida to Milwaukee in 2 days. My daughter flew from Milwaukee to South Korea with a cold and ended up with terrible sinus problems, etc. My aunt says it s okay for her eto fly. I m just worrying about the after effects. She s very stubborn.

Its ok for her to fly as she has been in pretty good health.
She has bronchitis but if her oxygen saturation is fine, I don't think there should be any problem for her travel in the flight
