And on a slightly related note, I see on its schedule that the seasonal GLA-MCO returns which means one more VS 747 during rush hour. It's pretty unbelievable how many VS 747's come down to MCO. On a good day, I've counted 6, and when the Lufthansa and Delta 747 were here at the same time, I've counted 7. On a "bad" day, you can expect to see at least 4, 5 if you count LH. You can now add G-VGAL to that list

What was a DL 747 doing there?

This is separate to A330 refit which has had minimal impact to VS schedule which has accounted for aircraft going out for maintenance.
DL aircraft are subbing certain VS routes e.g. the MAN ATL route due to separate issue.
