Asiana Airlines released a statement this morning saying it in fact will not sue TV station KTVU for falling for a prank and announcing the wrong names of captains of plane that crashed in San Francisco. The airline had previously said it intended to sue.

"We decided not to proceed with the suit to concentrate all our efforts on dealing with the aftermath of the accident," says Asiana in a statement.

The TV station had identified the captains as "Sum Ting Wong," "Wi Tu Lo," "Ho Lee Fuk," and "Bang Ding Ow."
