Asiana: 777 crash due to low speed, poor warning system

|By:, SA News Editor

Asiana Airlines has attributed the Boeing (BA) 777 crash in San Francisco in July to the plane flying too slowly and to "inadequate warning systems" that should have alerted the pilots to the problem.

Asiana recommended that Boeing modify the low-speed alert system on its planes.

Boeing put the blame squarely on the pilots, saying "there were numerous cues" indicating that the jet was not flying fast enough.

Both sides have already been sued over the crash, which killed three people and injured more than 180.
