DL 757 @ NRT

Thu Nov 17, 2011 3:13 am

Just searching the database when I came across this DL 753 in NRT back in 09. I understand NW used this 752 from EWR/JFK to AMS often, but how would it make it to NRT? From where? Thanks

DL has some 752's based in Tokyo for intra-Asian IIRC.

I assume you meant 752, not 753.

I just asked my dad this question today actually. The pilots flying the 757s in NRT, are they based in NRT, do they pilot other aircraft in, or do they deadhead in?
Ironically I have never flown a Delta MD-90 :)

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.

DL has some 752s based at NRT for various intra-Asia ops that they acquired from the NW merger. If I recall correctly, timf is correct and DL simply deadheads pilots in.

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):

* DL290 GUM-NRT
* DL287 SPN-NRT
* DL622 PUS-NRT

Again, this is just a sampling of the flights I know that are operated by DL's 752.

Cheers,

Quoting AA94 (Reply 4):

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.
