# How often do commercial flights go-around? [duplicate]

I've seen many references here to a flight going around, and YouTube is filled with videos of it happening, but I don't recall ever having been on a commercial flight that had an aborted landing. It might have happened when I flew as a small child, but, having been really, really excited to fly, I think I'd have remembered that.

How often do commercial flights actually abort a landing and have to make another attempt?

I'm primarily curious about US statistics, but non-US would be interesting as well.

• A) Thanks, @pondlife - I was looking for "go-around", not "Abort". B) so that's how Community♦ gets involved in closing a question. – FreeMan Jul 13 '15 at 19:01
