Asiana offers $12,607 to survivors of July crash
SEOUL (AP) - Asiana Airlines Inc. has offered US$10,000 (S$12,607) to each of the 288 surviving passengers of the flight that crash landed in San Francisco last month.
Asiana spokesman Lee Hyomin said on Tuesday that the payout is not a settlement and accepting the money does not prevent passengers from suing the airline.
The Asiana Boeing 777 landed short of the runway on July 6, killing three passengers and injuring dozens.
Ms Lee said Asiana has already made payments to the families of three passengers who were killed. She did not know the amount.
