I noticed on the NRT time schedule that NW is going to add a weekly NRT-SEA with a 332. The NRT-SEA will operate on Sundays and SEA-NRT on Saturday.
With slots on the NRT-JFK dormant, not a bad way to use at least two slots.

Does that mean NW will have dual ops to NRT on the weekends out of SEA? I thought NW already had a single daily to NRT from SEA.

NRT slots are use-it-or-lose-it. No dormancy.

NW used to be able to fill a 742 on this route on a regular basis, so I'm guessing they will be able to fill another 332 as well--and might even make some money off it too.

It is good to see them increasing service a bit. The A332 was a huge capacity reduction compared to the 742. I almost would not be surprised to see SEA-NRT go to an A333. SEA-NRT is shorter than SEA-AMS which was operated by the A333 for a while, so I would presume that it is within the A333's range.

The NRT-SEA will operate on Sundays and SEA-NRT on Saturday.

If the plane is going to operate SEA-NRT on Saturday and then turn around and do NRT-SEA on Sunday, then how are they going to get the extra A332 to Seattle? To my knowledge, Northwest does not operate any domestic widebody flights and rotates the fleet through its NRT and AMS hubs.

The aircraft used will be the inbound flt 33 aircraft from AMS. Note, it will arrive NRT too late to make onward connections, so will be used for passengers with NRT as final destination.

So does that mean that there will be no Saturday SEA-AMS flight or that there will be an extra AMS-SEA flight on Saturday and extra SEA-AMS flight on Sunday? I am sorry that I am confused on fleet utilization here.

2 planes are used for AMS-SEA, so one spends the night for mx. This means that one of the arrivals doesn't depart and likely goes to the hanger. This will be the a/c for the extra NRT segment... they just won't do mx on the weekends. The a/c will leave SEA on Saturday afternoon and return on Sunday afternoon, so effectively just a NRT turn.
