AA214 Crash: Asiana Airlines Faces 45-Day Ban on Incheon-San Francisco Flights

asianaOn November 14, the officials from South Korean Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport said they will ban Asiana Airlines flights to San Francisco for 45 days, as a punishment for 2013 crash.

The Asiana Flight 214 crashed during final approach to San Francisco International Airport in July last year and claimed 3 lives while around 200 others were injured. After a year-long investigation, the U.S. National Transportation Safety Board officials concluded that the pilots were responsible for the crash as they made errors during landing.

Asiana Airlines, which sells around 170,000 tickets annually for Incheon-San Francisco flights, said in a statement that they will appeal the ministry’s decision. “The decision will cause serious passenger inconvenience given the high traffic on the route. In that case, the authorities are normally recommended by regulations to fine an airline instead of suspending flight,” the statement said.

It is not yet clear when the flights would be suspended.

Asiana Airlines Plane Crash Update: Plane was Flying too Slow

sanfranciscoRecent documents released by the federal investigators reveal Asiana Airlines’ stance on the San Francisco plane crash that happened on July 6, last year.

The documents are a part of the report submitted by Asiana Airlines to the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB). In the report, the airline has acknowledged that the slow speed of plane was probably a cause of accident, and the irregularities in the Boeing 777-200ER’s autothrottle contributed to some extent. The plane’s navigation equipment was showing the autothrottle to be upholding the set speed, when in fact the equipment had disabled the minimum airspeed protection function of the aircraft.

Boeing has maintained in their report submitted to the NTSB that all the components and functions of the aircraft were working properly and did not contribute to the crash.

The incident happened when the flight was en route from Taipei to San Francisco. Three lives were lost while 200 were injured.

Recently Asiana Airlines admitted the pilot was flying too slowly.
