There are no pilots based at NRT. In the NW days, all would deadhead in. Now that Delta flies the 767-300 into NRT and pilots are cross-trained on the 757 and 767, pilots can be scheduled to fly on all legs. I have no way of knowing exactly how pilots are routed, but some may end up deadheading in (or out) as well.

Quoting AA94 (Reply 4):
At one time they operated the 752 on a SEA-NRT route, but they currently use the 752 on the following routes (these are the ones that I know, not all of them):
DL has never operated the 752 in scheduled service on SEA-NRT. DL was going to operate the 752 as a one-time only revenue pax flight eastbound NRT-SEA when a plane needed to be rotated back to the states after a schedule change, but they ended up canceling the flight on the planned day of operation and instead ferried it back to the mainland as usual. The 752s fairy back and forth via ANC as necessary.
