noticed GOL leased out some of their 738's to webjet, I'm guessing they're going back to the main fleet or could they be picked up by someone else?
The thing that brought my attention to these a/c's...what is the SFP? Sure nobody but GOL has 737-800SFPs?

SFP is Short Field Performance, some specific adjustments were made to allow operations at Rio's Santos Dumont airport which only has a 1323m runway.

Three of the seven B737-800s (PR-GGD, PR-GTI/U) that have been with Webjet are already operating for Gol again, so presumably some or all of the other four will also go back.

Cracking, thank you very much for that thorough explaination  !

Yes, they are gradually being painted back.

GOL is not the only airline, according to the link below more than 250 a/c a 11 customers had SFP, and that was in 2006.

GOL isn't the only SFP operator, though they were the first. Its optional on the -600, -700, -800 and standard on the -900ER. The primary differences between standard and a SFP are in the slats and spoilers. The slats deploy from extend to full extend at flaps 30 instead of flaps 10 on the standard plane. The speed brake throw increase over the standard plane averages 18° per spoiler on the ground and is anywhere from 0° to 27° depending on the spoiler. There is also an optional extendable tail skid, although I think its standard on the -900ER. There may be other differences, but I think those are the main ones.
