They could be operating to NRT as a sub or something.. Otherwise with the largest 757 fleet in the World they have to go somewhere. Also just because its Asia doesn't mean they can't have 757's. Just look at CZ, FM, MF, CA & NW stationed a few in NRT.

DL inherited a pretty substantial route network within Asia, when they picked up NW.

I have seen NW A320s at NRT that operate throughout Asia. NRT is a hub for Delta that I thik operates everything except the DC-9s, MD-80s and regional jets. When I was last through there I saw Airbus A320s, A330s, 757s, 777s, 747s and 767s.

No A320's at NRT these days, but the rest of those types are correct.

Various times through the year it would not be unexpected to see DL 757s at ICN, PEK, PVG, or TPE. You can guarantee you'll see them at NGO, NRT, GUM, and SPN.

NW operated the A320s out of NRT during the SARS outbreak.

I was fully aware that 757s operated in asia but I only expected to see widebodies from U.S. Carriers. Caught me by surprise as it was my first trip to asia (as well as my first post)

Yes Welcome to Asia... you will also see CO's 737-800 at NRT and MNL and in October SGN and SIN, the Idea is you fly a big widebody from the USA to NRT or HKG, then put the transit pax on a smaller narrowbody to the final Destination..saves Huge $$$$

Not unlike, for example, a passenger flying PHX-IAD-MUC or MSP-AMS-ATH.

North American Airlines operated the 757 from Japan to the U.S via a fuel stop in Anchorage. Now most are now operated on the 767-300s nonstop to Seattle. It's called the Patriot Express.

True, but not uncommon when that U.S. carrier has a hub @ NRT.   

On a side note, congrats on your first A.net post and Asia trip!

Are these intra-Asian flights done by DL as there is no network / alliance partner at NRT or HKG? And does DL do similar flights in Europe from a central large airport?

Thanks, Bruce.

Yes these are intra-Asian flight done by DL they picked up these flights from NW. It is basically a small hub. They do not do this in Europe.

As above explains DL has a few 757s based in NRT to fly some routes around Asia. Other airlines do this. Air France does MIA-SDQ and MIA-PAP with an A320 they base in the caribbean, UA also has intra-Asia flights but uses widebodies to do them.
