Saudia Cargo has stopped operating 747-8 and may be returning both to lessor.

Qeshm Fars Air, Iran acquired a 747-200F from South Airlines, Armenia, which makes the latter an ex-747 operator.

Probably a VIP version for a state airline, for government use.

Is it confirmed that it's going to Atlas Air, Chris? I see you show N860GT for it rather than N1785B which is what it is wearing.

Looks like Air Atlanta Icelandic will be adding a 747-8F to their fleet per their website. Possibly LN1437 or 1535?

Boeing admits its 747 ‘Queen of the Skies’ has no future as passenger plane

Boeing finally conceded publicly Tuesday that while the all-cargo model of its 747 jumbo jet will continue to sell, the longtime “Queen of the Skies” has no future as a passenger plane.

Differing sharply with the outlook from rival Airbus, Boeing expressed extreme doubt about the entire “very large aircraft” segment of the passenger-jet business and projected that the days of the Airbus A380 superjumbo are also numbered.

The 747 is really optimized for cargo. If it was really a passenger hauler, then they wouldn't design a plane with a hump.

Regarding the VLA market, unless Dubai, Singapore, and London builds an airport with ten runways, very large aircraft are necessary. It won't sell as much as smaller planes but someone needs to build some just to keep the aviation industry functioning. Without the A380, Emirates would go bankrupt, Heathrow will stagnate, Singapore and Seoul will lose its hub status and Qantas will struggle to add frequency on the kangaroo route with smaller planes.
