SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA – Last month Asiana Flight 214 crashed in San Francisco. Since then, it’s been a slew of bad press for Asiana Airlines.

Remember when the airline wanted to sue KTVU television for getting the pilot’s names wrong on-air? Well now Asiana’s the one paying up—$10,000 to each of the passengers.

Could that be a small price to pay for what these people went through?

A spokesperson for the airlines says this money in on top of the medical compensation passengers are getting. The airline also says that even those who were not injured can still cash in, and they can still sue.

Seems like someone has a guilty conscience, eh?!

No word if the families of the three people who died in the crash are getting anything, but what amount of money is enough for that?!
