Hadith Query: Wazifah prescribed to Fatimah

Ḥadīth Query: Waẓīfah prescribed to Fāṭimah (may Allah be pleased with her)

However, the time for ʿAṣr Ṣalāh begins before this according to the other schools of thought based on Mithl Awwal. As it is extremely difficult on some airlines in particular to perform Ṣalāh on the plane in a standing position, is it permissible for me to perform ʿAṣr Ṣalāh before I board, otherwise it will be qaḍāʾ?
