Allegiant A319 At CBG Today?

Tue Sep 01, 2015 12:20 pm

Hi everyone,

I was at CBG (Cambridge, UK) today and I was greeted at the unusual sight of an Allegiant A319. Unfortunately I missed the registration but I did get this photo.



Does anyone know what it is doing there?

if I had to guess, I was say is was ex-U2, I think they did get some A319s from them. Not sure why it's at CBG, the U2 A319s I heard about before were at SEN. Maybe it was painted/outfitted there?

I'm pretty sure it's ex-easyJet and being delivered SEN - CBG and onwards via a bit of work at Marshall's.

It looks like G-EZIB went to CBG from MLA on 17 Aug 15 to become N307NV (to be painted at CBG?). If it was being painted there, that would roughly tie up with it now appearing in Allegiant colours at CBG on 1 Sep 15.
