JFK to Mumbai is supposed to be the first 777LR route with the first two LR's, 777ER are range challenged for such a long distance. Atlanta to PVG is well within the range of the 777ER's in the DL fleet. Atlanta has always been the center of Delta's world and as large as DL's JFK operation is with all its international 767ER flights ATL is still the King.

The widebody fleet (or any aircraft at DL) isn't "based" in one particular hub; the network is set up very different say compared to AA (M80s at DFW, 737NGs at MIA). All of our aircraft rotate around the system on a regular basis. The only city that might fit your definition of "based" would be ATL - all Delta aircraft can consider ATL home. Crew bases, on the other hand, are very different. We base widebody pilots at JFK, ATL, CVG, SLC, and LAX.

The first 777LR will be dedicated to JFK-BOM initially. It will solely operate that route and remain on the ground at JFK in between missions to BOM; the ATL-JFK and JFK-ATL segments of DL 16 will be swapped to a 757 consequently. The inaugural ATL-PVG flight on March 30th will operate with the second 777LR, due in mid March. From there on out the 777ER and 777LR will rotate around the 777 route map (pending any new destinations being announced or equipment changes, eg. JFK-LHR or ATL-LHR using the excess 777 heavy lify).
