Asiana Airlines has decided not sue the San Francisco television station that aired the bogus names of the flight crew piloting Flight 214, a Boeing 777 that crash-landed at San Francisco International Airport earlier this month.
As we reported on Monday, the airline said it would sue the station because it damaged its reputation by inadvertently airing offensive names.
“The company said Wednesday it wouldn’t file a suit after KTVU offered an official apology. The bogus names, which phonetically spelled out phrases such as “Something Wrong” and “We Too Low,” were read during KTVU’s noon broadcast Friday. The airline called the report ‘demeaning’ and said it was ‘reviewing possible legal action.’”
