    I haven't seen the video but I thought if was because he didn't use VFR and it was foggy

    Now they are saying it was because he was too slow on approach. They also said he had only 43 hours on the 777. Which may sound like a lot but those are typically used for long flights right? 43 hours could be as few as 3 or 4 flights.

    no not likely, 43 hours is still very low but a typically long flight is probably around 8-9 hours in most cases. It does depend on where you are going, but he likely had 3-4 more pilots on that aircraft so experience should not have been an issue. Another pilot should have told him to pull off.

    If I was at work I'd pull up one of our longer routes.

    I have been on a 777 that was a 16 hour flight once o_O


    Apparently they did try to abort but that was too late. 1 second later they crashed.

    ok, so ICN to SFO is typically around 11 1/2 hours non stop, I don't know if Asiana does non stop though, but 11 1/2 hours requires 4 pilots per the FAA. They probably had two captains if not 3 and since the guy they are pinning it on was in OJT, one was more than likely a check airman/instructor.

    Yeah, video did not display as well as I had hoped. Try checking this link:

    Ah, it was probably just the media latching onto something without having a proper understanding of how air regulations work.
