ASIANA Airlines will sue the TV station that reported on the accident that saw three passengers killed  (two have been named as Ye Mengyuan, 16, and Wang Linjia, 17) and scores more injured when one of it jets crashed into the tarmac at San Francisco airport.

Reports suggest that the 777 descended too fast, causing the tail of the airliner to strike a sea wall.

The pilot was Lee Kang Kuk.

Yoon Young Doo, Asiana’s CEO, said the crash was not down to mechanical failure.

Asiana is one of South Korea’s two main airlines. It needs to confront the horror honestly and move on.

But Asiana Airline is upset that KTVU-TV “damaged its reputation (as an airline that allegedly  kills its customers? ed)  when it named the pilot of the stricken plane as  Captain Sum Ting Wong and crew Ho Lee Fuk and Wi Tu Lo .

News presenter Tori Campbell apologised for reading out the fake names.
