What does it mean when I wake up with a "snort" after nodding off on a plane ride?

In brief: Startled then snort

It means that you either started snoring and caught your self, or you woke up suddenly and when you did so you inhaled deeply, but your oropharynx was still relaxed and it sounded like a "snort".
Nothing to worry about.
