Asiana Airlines said Sunday its reputation was damaged by a report...


...that your pilots are unqualified to fly. You should sue yourselves.

Give Asiana a break. They need to build up a cash reserve for the butt- reaming the victims' families are about to give them.

Any minute amount of pity I had for the Airline is gone.  There was a F Up but the TV station and NTSB, but nothing that is as bad as the negligence the Airline has displayed.
 
2013-07-14 12:33:28 PM
That certainly is an interesting way to try to divert attention from the fact that your pilots are incompetent a$$holes.

The names themselves are just juvenile humor and kind of meh, but the fact that all those people didn't catch on is absolutely hilarious.

So, a whole TV news crew's brain power combined didn't hold a candle to that of the average a high schooler?  Multiple people saw that list and not a single one of them stopped and said "No, I don't care what the NTSB said.  This is obviously bull****."?

Dear Asiana: the last thing you or your pilots need at this point is *more* publicity. Keep your head down with your mouth shut, and wait for something else to catch the attention of the North American publi --- SQUIRREL!

p.s. you might also want to consider pulling a ValuJet/AirTran in case the story doesn't go away on its own

Where have you been?  This has been the state of TV news for years now; you only just noticed?

I thought it was hilarious, but I was about as surprised as when I took a piss this morning and saw that my urine was made of urine.

Silly even lame but not meh.  I suspect the reason no one caught it was that no one involved had any interest in it what they were preparing.  I'm sure the talking head didn't read it until it hit the prompter and somewhere the person that thought of it was laughing his/her ass off.  If you think "ho lee fuk" isn't funny you must be asian.

Hey, that's racist.  I was in total agreement up to then with your argument that the prank was epic.

I'd like to know more about how it happened. In particular, what's with the NTSB intern? Did he (or she [ah, come on: it was a guy]) know about the prank in advance? Was he involved from the get-go? Did he understand what he was confirming? After he hung up the phone, did he have to get stitches in his tongue?

I haven't seen that... *clicks play on video*

Muther of god... yeah, that's racist.

I feel sorry for that NTSB intern.   He probably thought he was being pranked, said yes, and hung up.

Undoubtedly, it was some lazy-assed manager who didn't have the time to come off his/her extended coffee break to answer the phone.  Generally all of these sort of opportunities arise for the incompetence of management.

He's just an intern. He probably was told to go make some coffee, and when he got back, he was blamed for the prank.

Wrong account?
 
2013-07-14 01:00:42 PM
The airline had already released a couple of the crew names 5 days prior.  You would think a producer could have figured that out.  The actual names also contained more letters, so even if you didn't know the exact name you could quickly figure out that it was not the same names that you read earlier in the week.  Then the story should have been why did the Airline and the NTSB have different names...

But instead KTVU made the graphic and ran with it....
 
2013-07-14 01:02:27 PM
Umm...

1.   I think you are going to have a hard time proving damage.   Just because you're insulted doesn't mean you are defamed.

2.   News media are given wider latitude on screwing up.    You'd have to show both intentional or reckless error as well as malice to prevail.
 
2013-07-14 01:05:31 PM
It's juvenile, it's puerile, and it's insensitive. But is it really racist?

And we're done here.

Show me exactly how the wrong names directly caused damages?  Pretty sure they're just saying they 'might' sue, just to strech out some publicity. Although one could argue that if they did bring this to court they should sue themselves for ruining their reputation by wasting everyone involved's time and money.

The intern at the NTSB might be, or he was talking to someone at KTVU and the joke didn't come across.  But KTVU is just plain lazy.
