Asiana Airlines Inc and Boeing Co are facing potential legal action by passengers who were on board a flight that crashed in San Francisco on July 6, killing three and injuring more than 180, according to US court filings.
South Korean Asiana Airlines has been considering legal action against a San Francisco TV station for ruining its reputation by using bogus and racially offensive names for four pilots from its recently crashed plane.
Asiana on Sunday said it was planning lawsuits against US transport authorities and a TV station for mistakenly confirming and airing false and offensive names for the pilots behind its fatal crash in San Francisco.
The ill-fated Asiana Airlines flight 214 that crash-landed at San Francisco airport had a delayed evacuation as the pilots told the flight attendants to let the passengers stay in their seats, it has emerged.
Asiana Airlines Flight 214 was flying far slower than recommended as it approached San Francisco International Airport just before its crash landing on Saturday, according to preliminary investigations.
Both flight data recorders of the crashed Boeing 777 aircraft of Asiana Airlines have been recovered, which authorities say could solve the mystery surrounding the accident involving the South Korean airlines.
Vedpal Singh, an Indian who was on board ill-fated flight of South Korea`s Asiana Airlines and miraculously survived along with his family, has said that there was no forewarning before the plane crashed here.
