I read that these four aircraft all have exact (same size also) the same wing. Is this true ? Can one wing be ideal for four aircraft ?

I'm sure that if you check the site, you'll find the answer you are looking for.

They are all the same wing, yes.

In the same regard the 737-600, -700, -800, and -900 have the same wing.

The 737-NGs do not have the same wing, actually. Remember, the BBJ is the fuselage of a -700, but with the wings of an -800. In addition, the wingspan of the -900 is 117ft5in, while the -800 is 112ft7in (from Boeing's website).

Actually, other than internal structural reinforcement and winglets, the NG wings are the same.
The difference, if you cared to look, was that the -800 spread was expressed without winglets...while the -900 reflected the incremental extension created by the winglets (even though I don't believe I have ever seen a 900 with winglets...).
Brgds.

Both aircraft either benefit or are compromised by having common wings....depends on your point of view...

The BBJ benefits from a different wing than the rest of the product line, I believe.

According to the Boeing website, the BBJ has the standard -800 wing and wingbox (presumably for extra fuel).

If you look carefully at the wing of an A321, you'll see small "spikes" (for lack of a better word) that look like small flap tracks on the flaps themselves that are not present on the A320 or A319. I don't know if there is a difference in length or wing area, but the A321's wing looks different than the others because of the little "spikes". Does anyone know why they are there?

Cheers, Ralph

The A321's wing is not the same as the A318/A319/A320.

The A321 has double-slotted flaps while the A318/A319/A320 all have single-slotted flaps, also known as simplex flaps.

Incidentally, winglets are not even OFFERED AS OPTION on 737-900 series aircraft.

The wings are different. The -700 uses a different wing than the -800 and
-900.
