83 Asiana survivors file papers to sue Boeing, citing malfunction of autothrottle system

Apparently these survivors know exactly why the plane crashed. The autothrottle system “failed.” I doubt they even know how the 777’s a/t system operates. Because not even I do.

Really, though? They have the gall to sue Boeing, who designed a giant tube of metal that slammed tail first into a break wall, spun around on the runway, caught fire.. and caused three deaths and few severe injuries?

Do you sue your car company when you crash? No! Instead you either sue the person who DROVE the car into you. Or YOU file a claim against YOURSELF. Same thing here.

I’d be sending cards and flowers to Boeing engineers if I was in that crash because they managed to make something that when flown into a wall at 140mph not everybody dies.

Asiana Air flight crew praised for timely response

They punctured an emergency chute that inflated inside the damaged plane and trapped people beneath. They doused fires while guiding — and sometimes carrying — passengers through smoke to exits and away from the wreckage. With their brisk, measured actions, flight attendants aboard the Asiana Airlines jet that crash landed over the weekend became the talk of American flight crews Monday.

That the South Korean crew coolly carried out those valiant tasks while wearing pencil skirts, high-heeled pumps, buttoned blazers and scarves equally impressed high-ranking members of two U.S. flight crew unions.

Asiana to sue TV station over racially offensive fake pilot names
