Airlines like Cargolux and Atlas would probably want to keep the same kind of aircraft, just like WN does, to save money. They would definetly want to stick with the same company too, I don't think they want to get too complicated.
I think they should get more 747's for expansion, to become a bigger and better company.

Well, having two types is no big deal, actually, they would have three, since the 742 and 744 fleet isn't common. After all, Atlas is an ACMI operator, so they have to buy what the customer needs, and as you know, not all customers need 747s.
Also, they are expanding, they are buying several 747-300's and converting them to freighters. They have also moved their headquarters to upstate NY, to be closer to their operations.
Atlas is a very well run, and conservative airline. They are one of the, if not THE biggest all cargo ACMI carrier.
