From the references to butterflies, hot air balloons, and angels, it appears that a way to escape an unwanted life is the act of flying, whether it is literally like Guy or through death like Manman in Nineteen Thirty Seven. In the situations where flying is referred to, the act of escape always comes with a price such as swimming through a river of blood or falling to your death. In the end, I think these instances of flying are warnings that escaping your problems in this way is causing more pain for the ones you leave behind than it is solving any problems.
