Question: What are your chances of surviving a plane crash?

Actually pretty good. In the US, between 1983 and 2000, there were 568 plane crashes. In 90% of these crashes there were survivors, and out of a total of 53,487 people onboard, 51,207 survived.

So what was the main problem that the survivors had in escaping?
Surprisingly, considering the flimsyness of them, it was getting their seatbelts off. It seems that in an emergency, they reverted to what they were most familiar with and tried to open them like a car-belt.
