July 2013 Asiana Airlines Crash

Dozens of lawsuits were filed against Boeing and Asiana Airlines over the July 6, 2013 crash of a Boeing 777-200ER aircraft, operating as Asiana Flight 214. The aircraft was approaching San Francisco airport after an 11-hour flight from Seoul, South Korea when it struck the seawall and broke apart. Three people were killed and hundreds were injured. The lawsuits allege that Boeing failed to equip the aircraft with effective seat restraints and low-airspeed warning and auto-throttle systems, and failed to properly train Asiana pilots.
