BAW Flying LHR-GSP

I’m an avid flight simmer so I’ll often scroll around FlightAware in search of flights to recreate on my computer, I was doing that this afternoon I noticed a very odd series of flights! British Airways has flown three 787s and two 777s from London Heathrow to Greenville-Spartanburg, South Carolina, within the last week. This definitely is not a normal airline service, I honestly didn’t know you could land either of those aircraft at GSP until today. Does anyone know what’s going on? Flights have all flown under BAW3582.

It’s a FedEx hub, so yes, it can take bigger planes.
Maybe vaccines?

Maybe, I hadn’t thought about that; but if they’re going to a FedEx hub why not put them on dedicated cargo aircraft through FedEx or someone else?

Perhaps an aircraft shortage.
