S. Korea's air cargo traffic drops in first half of 2012
(Shanghai Daily/Xinhua, July 24)

Quote:
SEOUL, July 24 (Xinhua) -- South Korea's air cargo traffic decreased 1.4 percent in the first six months of this year compared with the same period in 2011 in the face of global economic woes, the government said Tuesday.

The country's air cargo traffic stood at about 1.72 million tons in the January-June period, down 1.4 percent from 1.74 million tons a year before, according to the Ministry of Land, Transport and Maritime Affairs.

Holy crap! I hope nobody got killed. The 777 is a fairly safe aircraft and this would be the second complete hull lost.

It's actually the 3rd full-hull loss. The 2nd one was and EgyptAir 777-200ER that had a cockpit fire on the ground at Cairo Airport in 2011 that caused enough damage to write-off the plane.

I didn't know that. I only knew of the BA that crash landed on approach at Heathrow. Interesting, gotta look it up.

Sadly, there are two confirmed fatalities, along with 230 injuries, of which 40 of them are listed in "critical" condition. Updates can be read here. I have also updated my signature to direct you to my frequent updates on the Aviation Accidents thread.

There has to be punishment and jail time for this. SOMEONE is responsible. Probably in Korea.

This all points to either pilot error or mechanical failure. Planes dont crash in clear weather without human error.

Punishment is needed. Asiana might go bankrupt with the lawsuits too.

I'll recommend waiting until the findings are released by the NTSB.

Asiana Airlines to cut number of flights to Japan due to weaker yen

SEOUL, Sept. 5 (Yonhap) -- Asiana Airlines Inc., South Korea's No. 2 flag carrier, said Thursday that it will begin to cut the number of flights to two Japanese cities next month as a weaker yen takes its toll on the airline business.

The carrier said it will cut its number of weekly flights to four from the current seven on the Incheon-Sendai route, beginning early next month.

Sendai is one of the places hit hardest by the devastating earthquake and tsunami in 2011. Asiana, however, said the planned cut has nothing do with Japan's radiation leak.

Asiana also said it will begin to slash its number of weekly flights to five from the current seven on the Incheon-Shizuoka in October.

The planned move comes as the number of Japanese tourists visiting South Korea slumped amid the yen's decline.

The South Korean won rose 8.5 percent against the Japanese yen in the first three eight months of this year, a development that makes trips to South Korea more expensive for Japanese tourists.

Asiana said it carried a total of 321,783 passengers from Japan in July and August, compared with 375,874 passengers from the same period last year.

Still, the carrier said outbound traffic to Japan edged up 2.4 percent on-year to 204,700.

Meanwhile, the carrier has paid US$10,000 each in compensation to some of the 288 surviving passengers aboard its flight that crashed in San Francisco on July 6.

Still, Asiana declined to give details on how many passengers received the compensation. The accident killed three passengers and injured about 180 others.
