Fake identities of pilots involved in the recent Boeing 777 crash in San Francisco were read out on a local news programme in the city today.  Three people were killed in the crash.

The airline said the names were racist, and damaged its reputation.  A presenter, Tori Campbell, read out the names on air, and then quickly apologised after a commercial break.  The report was accompanied by a graphic alongside a photo of the burned-out plane.  The American National Transportation Safety Board has also apologised, and said a summer intern erroneously confirmed the names of the flight crew on the doomed July 6 flight.

The airline says it intends suing KTVU-TV.
