Asiana Airlines Blames Bad Software In Crash


By Paul Johnson

San Francisco, California (CNN) - For the first time -- Asiana airlines is acknowledging that pilot error was at least partly to blame for last year's plane crash in San Francisco.
Three people were killed in that crash.
A spokeswoman for the South Korean airline says the pilot "could have failed to respond quickly" to factors including problems with the aircraft's auto throttle system.
The airline is also blaming a faulty warning system for the crash -- saying that the bad software design did not alert the crew.
However, Boeing has said the airplane and its systems were "functioning as expected...and did not contribute to the accident."
