SEOUL, South Korea (AP) -- Asiana Airlines Inc., operator of the jet that crash landed in San Francisco last month, reported a second straight quarterly loss as North Korean war threats and a bird flu scare dented travel.
South Korea's No. 2 carrier said Friday its April-June net loss widened to 80 billion won ($72 million) from 48 billion won in the previous quarter.
Analysts forecast a loss of 32 billion won.
Asiana blamed lower travel demand after a torrent of war threats from North Korea in March and April dampened Japanese travel to South Korea.
A bird flu scare dented South Korean travel to China, Asiana's key market.
The July 6 crash landing of Asiana Flight 214 killed three Chinese passengers and injured dozens.
