Several friends of mine flew for the first time in the past week or two, which got me to thinking.
Have you ever flown on an airplane?
If yes, approximately how many times have you flown on an airplane in your life?
Approximately how many years ago did you first fly on an airplane? (Recent version - due to LJ scaling limitations, see next question if you started flying longer ago.)
Mean: 10.41 Median: 12 Std. Dev 6.89
Approximately how many years ago did you first fly on an airplane? (Long-term version)
Mean: 26.88 Median: 26 Std. Dev 5.83

I have never changed planes as part of a single trip (i.e. all direct flights, all the time).
