You can? although i imagine if you haemorraging they might tell you to go to hospital instead?

Aside from that they might not want you to bleed all over their plane?

Apparently, if you have a cut and are bleeding, you are not allowed to get on a plane. Is it because your blood might clot or somtheing?

Whilst bumbling through security last year I managed to knock my thumb on my belt buckle and reopened a deep cut from a previous vegetable slicing accident. I cupped a palm full of my own blood and had to go to the help desk for the first aid kit. I flew without incident.

Methinks this thread might have been a bit clearer if the OP had posted a source for this requirement.

There's nothing mentioned on the NHS Fit for Travel site, but I imagine this boils down to the airline not fancying returning mid-journey because the cabin pressure has meddled with your internals.
