I immediately thought that there are two “planes” flying in different directions, only one flight to each.
And in the end, Discord can go on a "flight into the past" and meet a very distant version of himself as the future, flying from an even farther future into an already close past. They can communicate or not communicate with each other, just like in a bus. This is a routine.
you left out the crying baby (why yes take an infant, who can't equalize the air bubbles in his ears, onto a noisy pressurized metal tube and take it up several thousand freet...)
and the younger Discord playing with his gaming thingy needs to be kicking the seat in front of him.
