Yes the 1-year Atlas lease is up as they have acquired other equipment and N194UA will operate on AMC and other charter flying over the next year back at United.
A ramper at IAH
told me that N194UA had been reconfigured to all-J/F seating, with no Y, for its service to Africa. Is that true? Or has she remained in her original UA
That would affect the sort of charters she could be good for, and how easily she could return to the mainline fleet.

Well it looks like they were trying to do the repaint on the cheap here.
Yes, they did the minimum -- they pained navy blue over the Atlas globe and white over the name. The result is generic-looking. Increasing that sense is "CHARTER" in the new titling, making it seem like it's a new division of the company or something. Only the winglets, with their Atlas-gold horizontal stripe, not so different from UA
's gold shade, seem proper.
Is N194UA a plane UA
will want to keep? Flying charters, or mainline?
Airfleets.net indicates she first flew in June 1996.
