In the same emotional post entitled "My Lucky Day", Mavropoulos shared a photo of his boarding pass and said, "I lost the flight - the moment I made that thought I collapsed because then exactly I realized how lucky I stood".

Last Sunday an Ethiopian Airlines plane has crashed en route to Nairobi, killing all 157 on board.

Mavropoulos said he was rebooked to Nairobi, where the flight was headed, but a few hours later while he was waiting for the plane, security stopped him to speak to him. "I had my nerves because there was no one to help me go fast", Mavropoulos wrote on now-viral Facebook post translated from Greek.

He said he was taken to the airport police department to verify his identity and was questioned for being the lone passenger who did not board the doomed flight. He had been scheduled to travel to Nairobi for an environmental conference, according to reports.

"The officer told me not to protest but to pray to God", Mr Mavropoulos added.

"They were just going up and down until one of the passengers saw on his mobile that the first plane which had just flown, like six minutes after it flew, it just crashed". "I'm posting because I want to tell everyone that the invisible threads of luck - the unplanned circumstances - knit the web of which our life is caught on", he wrote.

"It's millions of small threads we nearly never feel - but one to break is enough to feed the whole web instantly", he further said.

The South African Civil Aviation Authority welcomed Comair's "self-grounding", calling the decision commendable as the airline "puts the concerns, interests, and safety of its passengers and crew first".

China, Indonesia, Malaysia, Australia, Singapore and the United Kingdom have grounded the model from flying until further investigation.

The Federal Aviation Administration has not taken any action at this point.
