I think technically a flight of stairs would be any number of steps from one floor to another. In a split level house it could be as few as 5 from basement to first floor and 8 from first to second floor. In a home with eight foot ceilings it would be fewer than a home with 9 or 10 foot ceilings on the main level.

    ..... I'd say "more than one" even tho usualy it's more than 10

    if the floors / levels are separated by large distances, te number
    would be BIG.

    I've seen stairs going from floor to the roof of a power-plant which
    spanned over 100 feet. tho I didn't count the number of steps

    (it gets kinda vertigo-like when walking up structures like that)

    It's usually 12 or 13, but that depends on the height of the ceilings on the floor where the stairs start.
