Boeing 737-800 G-JZHA has positioned from EMA to LBA as EXS031E. It Departed EMA at 13:45GMT, and arriving LBA at 14:11GMT this afternoon (Tue 20/01/15). I can confirm that it has been painted from all white to the Jet2holidays livery, and was seen rolling out of the hangar at EMA yesterday afternoon:

I can also confirm that all white G-GDFS has now been painted into the Jet2.com Silver livery:

...and all white G-GDFY, is in the hangar now, undergoing painting into the Jet2.com Silver livery also.

Is there any method, like a 50/50 livery split? Or just a decision per aircraft and see where it ends up?

In the same breath is there any kind of system around how they are deployed? I can't imagine there will be, seems strange them having two liveries but I presume it could be part of the success of the jet2holidays brand. Did Allegiant say anything?

Well, as far as I'm aware, they don't have a strict method in the liveries they choose, and it looks as if it is more decision per aircraft, when it gets sent down for paint. This is evident I suppose when you look at the 738's in the G-GDF* series.

G-GDFP, G-GDFR, G-GDFS are all in the standard Jet2 livery. The we have:
G-GDFU - in holidays livery,
G-GDFV - in red livery,
G-GDFW - in holidays livery,
G-GDFX - in red livery,
G-GDFY - in red livery,
G-GDFZ - in holidays livery,
and of course G-JZAH in the holidays livery also.

There is no system as to where the liveries are deployed, i.e. Jet2holidays aircraft don't only serve the sunny Spain and Canary Island routes. Both liveries are treated as one, and the cabin fit inside is no different, still all with the red and grey seats. So it means that an aircraft like G-GDFZ, could be on MAN-TFS-MAN one day, and then be off to BUD, or CDG the next, and the same applies for the aircraft like newly painted G-GDFS.

In terms of Allegiant, Jet2 have pretty good relations with them, and it seems Allegiant have no problem with it, as although the liveries look identical, there are certain brand guidelines which class them as not. Like the sun on the tail - on Jet2holidays aircraft, the points of the Sun are rounded, where as on the Allegiant aircraft, they are not. There are also other slight differences, the colours are slightly different, and the positioning of the sun on the winglet, (when appropriate) on Allegiant aircraft, it is on the bottom, and Jet2holidays, in the middle.

I can only agree that it is the success of the Jet2holidays brand that makes Jet2 paint the aircraft in both liveries - I suppose it makes them stand out a little for doing so too!

Cheers for clearing that up LS still have about 4/5 different Sun's flying around though haha, some are quite noticeable, its from when they first started using the holidays livery.

I still think getting rid of the "2 tail" was a terrible terrible mistake.

The colour scheme makes no difference to the performance of the aircraft or the ticket price. It only interests spotters.

Always wondered why airlines put so much effort into the presentation of their aircraft and don't just paint them all white.

Seems there isn't any reason and they're just having a laugh...

Hahaha SWBKCB, it could even be more effective just to leave them unpainted.

This is not a new thing and used to happen all the time in the 80's with 737's
Monarch /Dan Air / Britannia having multiple various hybrid liveries. I went on a plain navy blue belly 737-200 otherwise white which belonged to BY. There was an Airtours Finnair hybrid in tears gone by and even BA got in on thr action with 757 hybrids with AMM and AE

Very nice! Kudos to Jet2 and it'll be good to have the 75's back! If only their Toronto/Boston adventure had paid off.

What's happening with LSAA seems to be stored for long term and having a lot of maintenance with Monarch at Man.

Emergency landing at Leeds Bradford Airport - Yorkshire Evening Post

Report says that G-GDFE (Boeing 737-300QC) (operating flight LS509 [NCL-PRG]) had diverted to LBA this morning as a precautionary measure, after there was reports of smoke in the cabin. The aircraft landed safely without any passenger or crew injury at 11:24GMT

I can also confirm that the replacement aircraft G-GDFL, which was parked at LBA at the time, departed just over an hour later at 12:31GMT, as EXS509A.
