not particularly - as mentioned in other threads these and many other civil airliners are mostly involved in troop flights and we are at present working many over the UK usually under RCH (Reach) callsigns.
Some go Stateside direct to places in eastern europe/the gulf region and then beyond (!), the 738 likely States-Shannon-eastern Europe (with an upgrade unlikely).

N321TZ was also in Munich the previous day.

Here’s some European 737-800 flights for ATA. All are military charters.

AMT8049
AMT8043 (from Gander but probably originated in Europe)
