“How often do planes crash?"/"Just once.”

An airplane riddle is often given as a passenger question to a flight attendant:

Q (passenger): How often does a plane crash?
A (flight attendant): Only once.


Q (passenger): How often do planes crash?
A (flight attendant): Just once.

“Isn’t that like the ‘how often do planes crash?’ question? Just the once, usually” was posted on the newsgroup uk.comp.sys.mac on June 21, 2002. The joke has been printed on several images.

The lady in the seat next to me was nervous about flying. She said “How often do planes crash?” So I told her “Just the one time, normally.”
