"South Korean regulators are investigating Asiana Airlines following a 19 April incident in which the crew of a Boeing 767-300 aircraft did not divert after they observed a warning with the aircraft?s port-side engine"

"The crew reduced the engine?s power, but the warning light remained on. Rather than divert to an airport in Japan, the crew elected to fly on, eventually landing in Saipan four hours later on a single engine."

"The Yonhap report adds that the two pilots involved in the incident have been suspended pending the outcome of the investigation."

Similar crew decision under different circumstances in 2005;

Completely different scenario. If you don't fly 4-engine airliners, don't castigate.
Is that because anyone who doesn't currently fly four engine airliner couldn't possibly fathom the difference?

An engine failure on a B-747 is an ABNORMAL procedure, not an EMERGENCY procedure.

The ENG/LIMIT/SURGE Stall checklist on the 777 does not state LANSA if the associated T/L has to stay at reduced power to prevent further surge.

Just sayin'

There was a similar incident with EK not too long ago.

Of course it's Boeing's fault! Why accept responsibility if you can blame someone else!

I never knew we had a port side. Better brush up on my knot tying.
