Asiana Airlines crash: Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg was supposed to be on the flight

sheryl-sandberg-2013.jpgFacebook COO Sheryl Sandberg has revealed via Facebook (natch) that she was supposed to be a passenger on the Asiana Airlines flight that crash landed today in San Francisco.

Sandberg posted:

Taking a minute to be thankful and explain what happened. My family, colleagues Debbie Frost, Charlton Gholson and Kelly Hoffman and I were originally going to take the Asiana flight that just crash-landed. We switched to United so we could use miles for my family's tickets. Our flight was scheduled to come in at the same time, but we were early and landed about 20 minutes before the crash. Our friend Dave David Eun was on the Asiana flight and he is fine.

Thank you to everyone who is reaching out - and sorry if we worried anyone.

Serious moment to give thanks.
