SEOUL, South Korea (CNN) — Asiana Airlines said it is paying $10,000 to each of the passengers aboard Flight 214 that crashed in San Francisco last month.

“It is separate to medical compensation,” spokeswoman Lee Hyo-min told CNN on Monday.

The spokeswoman added that passengers who collect the money “can still sue us.”
