The two people who died in yesterday's crash were female Chinese teenagers who had been seated at the back of the aircraft, Asiana Airlines has confirmed.
The airline's CEO and president Yoon Young-doo would not comment on whether the crash was due to pilot error, but told a press conference that the three captains on the aircraft had been fully trained and had more than 10,000 flying hours of experience between them.
Yoon also declined to say whether the crash could have been caused by an error by air traffic controllers at San Francisco.
