Asiana Airlines says it will proceed with its planned lawsuit against an Oakland, Calif., television station, but it’s not going to pursue legal action against the National Transportation Safety Board, according to CNN.



The site reports the Korean airline said over the weekend it would sue both entities after an intern at the NTSB mistakenly confirmed “inaccurate and offensive” names as those of the pilots of Flight 214, which crash-landed nine days ago at San Francisco International Airport.

The bogus names that phonetically spelled out phrases such as “Something Wrong” and “We Too Low” were read during KTVU’s noon broadcast Friday. The airline called the report “demeaning” and said it was “reviewing possible legal action,” according to CNN.
