Details to consider
Type and size of plane. A small bi-plane (private or individual) carries few occupants while a jet can be packed with many people (general population). A stunt plane is for risky maneuvers and for performance.
Color. Look up the individual color to understand its significance. If there is a logo on the plane, consider the message that the company logo conveys.
Condition. Is the plane in good working order? If not, what exactly is wrong with it? Insufficient fuel? A broken wing? Choking engine?
Location. Do you see the airplane in mid-air or is it stuck on the tarmac? Is it taking off? Over the open ocean?
Flight path. How is the plane flying? Is it smooth or rocky?
Destination. Does the plane reach its destination or does it plummet to a fiery crash? Does it end up in a foreign land?
Other contextual dream symbols
Consider other dream symbols and look up their meanings, too: Weather conditions, obstacles, activities while on plane. Is there a pilot, co-pilot or other travelers? Does any particular occupant stand out? Is the safety equipment missing? Are you looking out the window? Look up each individual image for its dream symbol meaning.
