Well I don't think your replies are completely accurate. There were two jet crashes this year in my city over on the mountains. There was also a main crash near our airport, that crashed into a apartment, and the apartment calapsed. This was in 2008 in Vancouver, Canada.
So for whoever is going to reply with 1, in so and so is the chance your going to end up on a plane that crashes, is wrong. It can happen at anytime. Most pilots these days are professional, with good equipments, so there shouldn't be any worries. But please dont say it's uncommon - for those people that are going to reply.
Couple years back, I was about to get on a plane, and they just announced that, they needed to fix the engine; and that we will be delayed. That just comes to show, that these things do happen. However, it was fixed, no problems what so ever. It was a 12 hour flight.
Not trying to scare you or anything! You shouldn't worry, celebrities fly all the time
