2 Atlas Airlines 744s at IAH

There are 2 of these guys sitting behind the Continental Airlines Cargo facility with the golden globe on the tail.

N263SG has been sitting in the same spot for over a month now.

N322SG has been sitting in the same spot for over 2 weeks.

Does anyone have any info regarding why these birds are nesting?

These are the Sonair 744’s (will be operated by Atlas) that should have started operating the regular scheduled service between KIAH and FNLU beginning on May 3.

World Airways has been operating these routes for Sonair with MD-11’s and Atlas was supposed to take over but for some reason, has not yet done so.

Not sure what the problem is but I would think it will be sorted out soon and they will be up flying shortly.

Here are the World flights soon to be ending,



Ahh ok. I was wondering why I havent seen the md-11’s

What would the flight #'s be?

Found out the Atlas service will begin May 31st,


but doesn’t show the flight numbers.

This was a proving route Atlas did back in April,
