SAN FRANCISCO -- Sheryl Sandberg, Facebook’s chief operating officer, was scheduled to be on the Asiana Airlines flight that crashed at San Francisco International Airport on Saturday, but switched to a United Airlines flight.
“Taking a minute to be thankful,” Sandberg posted on Facebook. “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.”
