I'm flying westward in the morning. I don't think I'll have enough time to pray shacharit before I take off, and don't wish to do so en route. I should land with enough time to pray shacharit before zman kriat shma: is there any problem with my doing so? What would other issues of tefillah be in this case?
Happens to me all the time. Two main issues I see
- Once the time to pray arrives, you cannot eat before you pray (see e.g., here and here), which is one incentive to pray on the plane
- Planes are often delayed, or you can get stuck on the runway waiting to get off, therefore it is not a good idea to wait until the last minute to pray at the destination airport
If you cannot pray with talit and tfilin on the plane, one not-ideal possibility is to pray without on the plane, and put talit/tfilin later, either after arriving or at mincha.
