(CNN) - For the first time, Asiana Airlines is acknowledging that pilot error was at least partly to blame for last year's plane crash in San Francisco. Three people were killed in that crash.

A spokeswoman for the South Korean airline says the pilot "could have failed to respond quickly" to factors including problems with the aircraft's auto-throttle system.

The airline is also blaming a faulty warning system for the crash, saying that the bad software design did not alert the crew.

However, Boeing has said the airplane and it's systems were "functioning as expected, and did not contribute to the accident."
