The press release says US is not selling any aircraft currently in the fleet but I have heard they are trying to work out a deal to sell 734's to Fedex. Not sure if those 734 are from the desert or not but that would explain why they sought premission from the judge to sell planes
The pilots' (and others') contract required 279 planes operated at 10 hours a day. The court granted relief from this provision. It doesn't necessarily mean US will sell planes; but, as an example, it does mean they can now reduce European flying for the winter, when the flights are not profitable.
