Hi -- airlines today pledged to boost training for its pilots moving to new models of aircraft.
This comes a week after that fiery jet crash in San Francisco which killed three girls and wounded more than a 180 other people.
Keep in mind IG got a report reported how -- the pilot in charge of winning that.
Boeing's seven or triple seven was flying that type of aircraft to -- Cisco for the very first time.
And that his co pilot was flying as a triple seven instructor also for the first time.
Meanwhile the airline reported today it plans to sue a television station in San Francisco after it -- false names of the pilots on Friday.
You've probably heard these names we're not gonna repeat them here because many folks consider them racially offensive.
Remember the National Transportation Safety Board announced that in a summer intern mistakenly confirmed those names of fox station ATV you.
Fox station for San Francisco in the Bay Area.
Both the station and the NTSB -- since apologized.
In fact repeatedly but it sounds like that apology is not enough.
Trace Gallagher an.
-- -- some reports say the intro was actually fired the NTSB will only confirm that appropriate action was taken and we still do not know where KTV you've got those phony names in the first place the station will only say once it got the names they made a series of mistakes like.
Not sounding the names out and not asking who it was that they were speaking to at the NTSB.
KTV -- apology reads in part quoting here.
-- we pride ourselves on getting it right -- having the highest of standards and integrity.
Clearly on Friday that didn't happen so again from everyone here -- KTV you we offer our sincerest apology.
There is no word tonight if there are any jobs on the line.
At fox two separate Cisco KTV you know they're -- been a lot of apologies Trace and I guess the big disproved beat -- enough.
Yeah I mean they're just not gone over very well even though KGB has said they had no malicious intent you have groups like the Asian American -- association.
Issuing statement that in pretty much scathing.
Style that reads in part quote.
Those names were not only wrong but so grossly offensive that is hard for us.
At the Asian American -- association to fatten them.
How those names made it onto the broadcast.
-- -- airlines is also not buying the apology saying quote.
The reputation of the four pilots and of the company had been seriously damaged by this report but.
We spoke to a First Amendment lawyer earlier who says.
A successful lawsuit based on these phony names is a long shot -- The courts have made it fairly difficult to prevail as a plaintiff in a defamation action.
It really have to show something beyond the fact that the television station got the story wrong.
Or printed the wrong names you'd have to show some.
Intentional malice or reckless indifference that some real intent to hurt.
-- -- by the way has not yet decided whether or not they will sue the NTSB.
-- All right Trace Gallagher -- season.
