Then again, if those folks had round trip tickets, they(Asiana) can just ball up and have to deal with it in S. Korea, where courts aren't near as friendly to the individual. Having the RT ticket puts their final destination back there and that is where any legal action will have to be taken. If they were on a one way into the U.S., they have legal standing here.
