The "marks" on the lower picture are a reflection of the wing leading edge and slat on the side of the fuselage.

I don't see any "marks" in the upper photo.

Sorry. I misunderstood your original question. I didn't notice these lines the first time I looked at the photos.

These lines puzzle me, too. They seem to follow what I would think would be airflow paths along the fuselage.

Looks like Michael O'Leary decided that go-faster stripes were required. I can't see the fluffy dice in the cockpit though  Wink/being sarcastic

It reminds me of he work that had to be done after the paint shop (in Louisiana???) had messed things up by using steel scrapers along the skin joints. Notice, those lines are at skin joints. It looks like they were stripped for inspection. That's all I can come up with.
