SEOUL, July 8
SEOUL, July 8 (Reuters) - Shares in South Korea's Asiana Airlines are set to plunge at the open on Monday, with its bids indicating more than a 12 percent drop, after its Boeing 777 crash-landed at San Francisco's airport on Saturday.
The aircraft was traveling "significantly below" its intended speed and its crew tried to abort the landing seconds before it hit the seawall in front of the runway, the U.S. National Transportation Safety Board said on Sunday.
