It's just a figure of speech, like the phrase "bus factor". "On an
airplane" means "not having reliable Net access"; you don't actually
have to be on an airplane for that to happen.

It may also be the case that you've not been anywhere without Net
access in years, but that's not only due to your not flying :-).
