Looking at the photo of G-GSSC of Global Supply Systems below on the right I noticed that the former small ‘Operated for British Airways World Cargo’ titles visible below the aircraft’s flight-deck windows in the photo on the left had been removed:

At first I thought that this was in preparation for the return of this aircraft to Atlas Air when GSS took delivery of their new 748Fs. But I then discovered that at least since 17 November when this aircraft operated AMS-FRA-DXB as EK9972 and up until 29 December when it was ferried DXB-MSE (GSS329) and parked, GSS have been operating it on behalf of EK as confirmed here:

Does anyone know when this sublease started?

According to skyliner-aviation, the aircraft received the reg N494MC after being ferried to MSE and prior return to Atlas. Maybe the sublease was just a substitution for the holiday season ....

After deliveries of the 747-8Fs, all 744 G-GSSA/B/C will going back to Atlas. It will be interesting to see the future assignment of the three aircraft. Can anybody shed light on this?

All three have already been handed back to Atlas Air, one receiving its original registration, two have received new registrations. I assume they will replace Classics in the fleet.
