There would be at least one, possibly two reserve pilots.

Was probably 3 in there to begin with for whatever reason. 3-1=2. I very much doubt there would have been one left in there alone.

Some have 2 jumpseats not sure about Jetstar 787’s. I was on a VA 737 a while back and pilot went to toilet. Crew member went into cockpit until he come back. It was reassuring to see.

Three pilots operate JQ 787 international flights (sometimes 4), third and fourth pilot often a second officer

Generally 2 people are in the cockpit (Varying on airline/country regulations). I've seen a FA go into the cockpit on short-haul flights whenever one of the pilots needed to go for a toilet break.
