Some companies have incorporated switching on landing light into their
procedures in different ways. E. g.: Lufthansa German Airlines switches
on landing lights as soon as passing flight level 100 during descend as
there is no VFR traffic above FL100 in Germany, while the sister company
Lufthansa CityLine normally only switches on recognition lights when in
VFR airspace, but then switching on full landing and/or taxi lights
after being cleared to land.  This might explain why the airplanes you
noticed are differently lighted.
