Spirit Airlines repainting planes

Fri Mar 16, 2018 2:36 am

I see Spirit has some planes still painted in the older paint jobs,The older gray and the blue and white which did not last long before Spirit switched to all Yellow.What is the repainting schedule like or are most the ones in the older paint job going to be retired from the fleet soon?

Like Frontier. I don’t anticipate them pulling an aircraft out of service to have it painted. I would assume any and all new aircraft will have the update livery while the old livery will stay until the aircraft is retired/sold/leased elsewhere.

There's not much of the silver livery still around, but quite a bit of the blue & white livery is still around with many of the A320's. Also interesting to note most if not all of the A320's feature the spaceflex interior, with most of the rows being the older style seats while the last 3-4 rows are the newer style seats with the small tray tables. Looked weird but oh well.

NK is continuing to move through the pixel A319s (I haven't seen one in quite some time) and they are now starting to repaint the red and blue A320s that were delivered with sharklets.
