This may actually be the most ridiculous thing ever suggested, but what if, our original timeline (815) and the subsequent 5 seasons was in fact an alternate timeline / reality, and the original timeline was the sailing of the Black Rock and subsequent people arriving .... which included some of our Losties!!!! And were either candidates, or something happened to them in the original timeline many many many years ago, which led Jacob in the 815 reality, to make them candidates, so that they would return to the Island this time via a plane crash

No idea why I have just thought this, and no idea if anyone has considered it before ... A little daft perhaps yes. Wanted to share anyhow
