"The reputation of the four pilots and of the company had been seriously damaged," the airline said.

A Bay Area TV station that aired four fake names of the pilots of the Boeing 777 that crash landed at San Francisco airport on July 6 may face legal action from Asiana Airlines. 

The airline says that it is also mulling legal action against the National Transportation Safety Board, which admitted on Friday that a summer intern confirmed those fake names to the station, KTVU-TV. 

"Regarding the KTVU-TV's demeaning report of the pilots on July 12, ASIANA Airlines is reviewing possible legal action against KTVU-TV and the NTSB," the airlines said in a statement to CNN. "The reputation of the four pilots and of the company had been seriously damaged by this report. The company is reviewing taking legal action against both KTVU-TV and the NTSB."

KTVU-TV aired a report on Friday that falsely stated the airline pilots names were "Captain Sum Ting Wong," "Wi Tu Lo," "Ho Lee Fuk" and "Bang Ding Ow." The network issued an on-air apology and a statement on its website explaining its mistakes, although it initially maintained that "an NTSB official" confirmed those names. 

The NTSB issued a statement on Friday evening explaining the matter. "Earlier today, in response to an inquiry from a media outlet, a summer intern acted outside the scope of his authority when he erroneously confirmed the names of the flight crew on the aircraft," the release said

Three people have been confirmed dead in the Asiana Airlines crash landing, with many more passengers injured.

stalled at ...120 mph .... 50-100' in the air ...with a 340 TON vehicle! His real name doesn't do him much justice either:  "Pilot Lee Kang-kook had flown a Boeing 777 nine previous times to other airports, but was flying the jet to SFO for the first time, Asiana Airlines spokeswoman Lee Hyo-min said."

 

Hey they should be thanking their Lucky Dragons or whatever. Shoulda only been two fatalities, all in all out of a possible 300, its a quite a bargain.

 

They do have some great names though. Unfortunate we find them so amusing. It's kinda of an endearment isn't it?
