A dream about being on a plane often symbolizes a desire for change or a transition in life. That's the simplest answer.

It can indicate that you are on a new path or journey, possibly involving personal growth or career advancement. On the other hand, watching a plane fly can represent your aspirations or goals that seem out of reach. It may also suggest feelings of being left behind or missing out on opportunities. Both scenarios reflect a sense of movement and progression, but from different perspectives.

A plane is often a difficult dream experience to to give you a single, definitive meaning for. To know for sure, I'd want to take a deeper dive into the dreamer's life and current environment.

2. The psychoanalyst's interpretation

Dreaming of being on a plane, in Freudian terms, may symbolize the unconscious desire to elevate oneself above mundane realities, a manifestation of the ego's aspiration for transcendence.

With that being said, a plane can be more complicated than that. It may also reflect the id's yearning for freedom and liberation from societal constraints. Conversely, observing a plane in flight could represent the superego's awareness of unfulfilled ambitions or unattained goals, a visual metaphor for the unreachable. It may also denote feelings of exclusion or abandonment, a projection of the psyche's sense of isolation. Both scenarios, though distinct, are essentially expressions of the human condition's inherent dynamism and progression.

Dreaming of being on a plane signifies your spiritual journey, a transition from one phase of your spiritual growth to another. It's a divine message that you're evolving, rising above earthly concerns, and moving towards a higher consciousness. Watching a plane fly, on the other hand, symbolizes your spiritual aspirations. It's a reminder from the divine that your goals may seem distant but are within reach with faith and perseverance. It could also indicate feelings of spiritual stagnation or missed spiritual opportunities. Both scenarios, though different, are spiritual metaphors for your soul's journey and evolution.
