The aircraft was the seventh out of 12 777s that Asiana received between February 2001 and July 2012.

UPDATE: The pilot at the controls of Asiana Flight 214 when it crashed had not landed a 777 at San Francisco before, according to news reports citing the airline. He had, however, landed at the airport in other aircraft types. While he was a veteran Asiana pilot with nearly 10,000 hr. flying experience, he reportedly only had 43 hr. experience on 777-200s. The airline says the co-pilot at the time was very experienced on 777s.
