Let's pretend here that we're on a 737, or a dc-9, and we need to fly from Portland Maine to Tokyo (obviously would be a ferry flght) -- how would we route the plane? Where would we get fuel? Would we need to carry extra fuel to cross the pacific -- I'd put this one on the tech forum, but no one there is interested

Depends on the variant. Let's say we're flying a Boeing Business Jet with maximum tankage. That would get you to ANC to refuel and from there straight on into Tokyo. Flying a DC-9 series, a great circle route via the North Pacific would also make sense. Leaving from ANC, you'd be one long flight leg to Tokyo. If fuel were a concern, Vladivostock could be a refueling stop. What would be more difficult would be a southerly crossing heading to Austrailia.
