"Why so many folks from 1 company on a single flight" was my first business-related thought as well. Very very bad policy for this very reason. It may be uncomfortable for companies to consider tragities such as this and the bean counters are sure to complain loudly but - never ever should so many travel together.

Mine too, of course.  HOWEVER.... I guess Freescale didn't have the same policy as its former parent Motorola did, at least back in antediluvian times when I worked there.  No more than two people from the same department were permitted on the same flight.  Of course, that was long before the jumbo jets of today.  By modern standards, the 777 involved in this incidentwas just barely a "jumbo"; the big boys today carry twice as many as this flight did.  Something to think about...

Yes When I also read the news it was so scary. Looks like there is some other angle to this disaster, today's newspaper said.
