It was an inspired guess

Various gestures by airlines toward pony fans have been gratifying — I know I was delighted by this one — but Sprocket counsels caution:

It’s fun that all of these airlines are tweeting jokes about a flight to Equestria. However, it is important to stay grounded in reality, and remember that airplanes can’t actually get you there.

The real way to get to Equestria is through a rift in the spacetime continuum that opens approximately 26 times a year, and stays open for 22 minutes per occurrence. The concentrated Equine Radiation that spills out of the rift affects the emotions of those exposed to it, and alters our central nervous systems, expanding our consciousnesses onto the Equestrian plane.

Or, if The Sparkle Chronicles is to be believed, somewhere between 35 and 40 minutes. (In that story, the rift is referred to as “The Breach.”)
