Asiana Airlines says it will pay 10-thousand dollars to each passenger who was on its flight that crashed in San Francisco last month.
A spokeswoman for the airline tells CNN the money is separate from medical compensation and even people who weren't hurt can receive the money. She added that those who do collect the money can still sue the airline over the deadly wreck.
Three people were killed and more than 180 others were hurt when flight 214 crashed short of the runway on July 6th. The National Transportation Safety Board is still investigating the crash.
