On earth, any vertical force greater than 661.39 pounds will lift a mass of 300 kg.

Well, if the Upthrust were greater than the weight, there would be a net force upwards, and as a consequence of newtons second law a=F/m it accelerates upwards. Hence, the submarine floats.

Neither is greater.

In weight, 1.2kg is much heavier than 285g

If lift is greater than weight, the airplane proceeds up, away from the ground. If lift is less than weight, the airplane proceeds down, toward the ground.

The four basic forces acting on an aircraft are Lift, Weight (Gravity), Thrust, and Drag. In order for an aircraft to ascend, Lift must be greater than Weight, and Thrust must be greater than Drag.
