What do dreams about airplane mean?

Dreams about airplanes, like dreams about all modes of transportation, may be addressing the path you are on in life, how fast you are moving and how much you are in control of your life. Consider what the plane is doing, who you are and where you are on the plane for further insight.
  • What is the plane doing?

    Dreams about planes taking off may symbolize a new project, plan, relationship or opportunity may be about to "take off" or get started.
  • Dreaming you are airborne may suggest you are reaching new heights or levels of achievement in your career or you may be reaching higher levels of spirituality or consciousness; may also represent attaining or reaching for your high ideals or goals in life.
  • Hitting turbulence may symbolize obstacles along the way.
  • If the plane is banking or turning left or right it may suggest that a slight detour from your “flight plan” is needed; or you have changed directions or your plans have changed or you may be “off course.”
  • Dreaming of an airplane landing may symbolize a project, relationship or phase of life may be coming to an end.
  • Dreaming that your flight is cancelled may represent an unsuccessful plan, project or relationship that never got off the ground.
  • Who are you on the plane?

    The pilot or navigator may represent being in control over where you are going and how you are getting there.
  • The flight attendant symbolizes someone that is meeting others needs and so may represent neglecting your own needs to satisfy others.
  • If you are a passenger, you may be giving control of your life and future to others; you may be going along with the crowd or following instead of leading; or you may be relying on others to get you to where you want or need to go.
  • Where are you on the plane?

    Sitting in the cockpit may symbolize being in the best possible position to “oversee” or be in control of not only yourself, but of others, too; may represent a leadership role.
  • Sitting in First Class may symbolize feeling special, or deserving of special treatment.
  • Sitting in Economy Class may suggest feeling ordinary; or may symbolize being financially responsible, cheap or fiscally challenged.
  • Sitting in Business Class may represent having a job to do or being overworked.
  • If you are in a window seat, you may have a higher perspective or see the “big picture” but may be not in a position to act on it; or you may only be seeing one side of a situation or argument.
  • Sitting on the aisle may suggest you are looking for an easy or quick way out of a situation; or you may be considering “walking down the aisle” (getting married).
  • Sitting in the middle seat may symbolize feeling crowded or blocked in, lacking freedom or elbow room.
  • Dreaming About a Plane Crashing

    Dreaming of an airplane crashing may be a metaphor for some aspect of your life that is in danger of ending quickly and unexpectedly; may be an indication that your goals or ideals are too high and unattainable; or it may be symbolize your self-doubt and lack of self-confidence in attaining these goals.

                        I was sitting in a aisle seat in regular class. I am afraid of flying anyway but, I felt anxious as if something bad was about to happen. ???????

                                  What about a small plane, with a back opening, and a side opening? What if both are open and you're forced out by the air flow? What if you force yourself awake before you die and before the sides of the back opening of the plane has even left your field of vision because you realize you have no parachute?

                                              I had many recurring dreams of knowing someone that owned a small 2 person aircraft. we'd take it out flying for leisure like a Sunday drive. doing barrel rolls & writing in the sky. taking turns flying. they were such happy dreams. since I met him, I have only dreamt of planes again as larger ones, or helicopters crashing into the ground nearby in a suburban area. he & i had been living together while emotionally detached for many years. together a total of 10 years. we are currently separated but have a small child together & working on selves, getting along much better apart.dont recall last dream of airplanes but I hope they come to me again soon as a symbol for some guidance. they are significant because of his affiliation with airplanes before I ever knew he existed or had ever traveled on one myself. I had zero interest in planes prior to knowing him yet I always had these happy dreams of flying them. so to me, they represent him & our relationship. always in hindsight but never the less always an indicator of something. maybe I just answered my own questions..maybe I never will dream of airplanes again because it's really over. & realization that the dreams before I knew him were happy & the ones with him tragic are likely because we were never meant to be? 😦🤦‍♀️💔😟😢

                                                            In my dream i was sitting with my friends (we are 11) we were boarding the plane Alexx had Captain America suit beneath his clothes Gabe had Falcon/Captain America suit on beneath his clothes Alexia had a Spider-Gwen type of suit in her duffel bag and I had nothing I told them "I can call my suit any time" ( because in the dream I was Iron Man but myself) I think that means something big or exciting is developing in your life (I think it might have to do with super heroes 😉)

                                                                I dreamed that i was on a plane with my boyfriend whom apparently was my husband and we had kids on the flight. The plane became to crash, i can't really remember much but everyone was screaming for their lives in fright and terror. However the plane crash landed on some remote area people were injured i found my boyfriend he was in terrible injury even me. I ask him to help me find the kids we started looking around calling out to them but they were lots of injured people along side dead people i began to scream and cry. Although i was crying they were others who wasn't finding their loved ones too.

I told everyone else we would crash and die but they all believed we would survive. The plane plummeted to earth and when it hit the earth there was silence and then a whoosh of hot air/flames. We all survived though.
