SEOUL, South Korea -- Asiana Airlines has abandoned its plans to sue a San Francisco TV station over the use of racially offensive names.
The South Korean air carrier said Wednesday in a statement that KTVU-TV has already apologized for using fake names for four pilots on a plane that crashed in San Francisco on July 6. It will no longer sue, as it had said it would do.

Asiana says it wants to focus on supporting passengers and families. The crash killed three and injured dozens.
Last week, an anchor for KTVU-TV read the fake names on air and then apologized after a break.
Asiana earlier said the report seriously damaged its reputation. It said Monday that it would sue the TV station to respond to the racially discriminatory report that disparaged Asians.
