Cargolux had been overconfident and selling/leasing out some of its 744Fs because they were expecting their first 748F by this time. Two went to UPS earlier this year (as much as I know strangely they havent been operated yet by UPS though). This is the third 744F to leave Luxemburg.
Thats why Cargolux has leased a 744BCF in spring, and there was a report Boeing might give them the ex-Korean BCF they have been using for 748-comparison tests lately. I guess that would be for free as a compensation.
