0706_Sheryl_Sandberg_articleStatus Update: Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg was almost a passenger on the plane that crash landed in San Francisco today ... but a last minute decision to change flights spared her and her family a harrowing ordeal.

Sanderg posted on her FB page (where else?) that she switched flights at the last minute so she could use her airline miles to pay for her family's tickets.

She explained, "Our flight was scheduled to come in at the same time, but we were early and landed about 20 minutes before the crash."

Asiana Airlines Flight 214 crashed at 11:30 AM PT, killing two and hospitalizing another 130.

I am so sick of these people that have to have the limelight and be the story. "Sheryl, we don't care!" Those poor people that were injured and killed should be the focus, and you should keep your mouth shut until some time has passed to tell your story.
As bad as Kim K

"...on the plane that crash landed in San Francisco today..." Umm, there's a difference between a crash landing and crashing during a landing attempt, which is what happened here. I should know better than to expect accuracy from TMZ.

Sheryl Sandberg has a net worth over $1 billion and she still uses frequent flyer miles from work to take her kids on trips? Somebody needs to tell this woman she won. She doesn't need to keep striving no more.

Yeah...echoing....I'll bet the families of the DEAD are really glad to hear that this self-involved bitch is OK. Reminds me of Brett F*ckin Favre holding a press conference DURING Katrina to let us know HIS FAMILY back in Mississippi was fine....Thanks Brett....and thanks, too, to this bitch from Facebook!
