...do we have an acronym for it yet? Short landing just doesn't sound cool enough.

HIROSHIMA – Asiana Airlines Vice President Akiyoshi Yamamura apologized Thursday to passengers and their families over Tuesday’s botched landing at Hiroshima Airport.

“I apologize from the bottom of my heart to the passengers, their family members and those involved,” Yamamura told reporters gathered at the airport.

It might be easier if Asiana just issued this statement before every flight.
