Wow!
I thought it's amazing! Very nice!
I don't know why, but I think that 737's with winglets are very impressive.

Reminds me of the huge winglets of Varig's 737-800

Very nice

Putting the winglets on the 737 sure makes the A/C look bigger, doesn't it!?!

Actually, this is exactly was first WN by winglets B737-700 aircraft and those are looking great pics, huh? I like it all. Which one will be on the flight out of BWI on the transcontinental flight? Thanks!  Smile

I agree, the 737 looks much bigger with winglets. The wingleted 737 is one of the few aircraft that can consistently fool me from a distance, despite a unique light pattern. (I spot it as a 757.)

Nice to see the paint job on the winglets!

Up, up and away!

I have to say that this is the first time that I ever thought that WN's new paint scheme looked good...can't wait to see one in PHX. Shouldn't be too long though, we get plenty of WN transcontinental flights and they are even planning on building a third 8-gate concourse in PHX soon, to bring the total up to 24 gates. We'll see how things go...

The winglets definitely look good. They do make the 737 look bigger.

Hope I can fly WN soon.

From our employee website....

The first 737-700 aircraft with blended winglets will make its debut on Monday, October 13, at an event in Austin. The aircraft is being dedicated to longtime Southwest Airlines friend and partner, Mike Levy.

Levy is the publisher of Texas Monthly magazine, and in honor of the magazine's 30th anniversary, Levy's likeness will appear on the first winglets on our aircraft for one month. Not only has Levy been a strong supporter of Southwest Airlines, he also has "badgered" Herb for years about adding winglets to our planes as well as jokingly trying to convince him to add Levy's face to a Southwest jet. Today, Mike Levy is granted his two wishes, and together he and Southwest Airlines make aviation history.

This is a "departure" from our usual advertising venue. While Southwest Airlines is well known for doing things a bit on the quirky side, we have no plans to advertise on our winglets in the future. Actually, we are not viewing this as advertisement, but rather as a tribute to a great partner.

Here's a schedule for viewing our first 737-700 aircraft with blended winglets:

1:30 - 1:45 p.m. AUS: Taxi at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport
2:15 - 2:30 p.m. DAL: Low pass at Dallas Love Field
3:00 - 5:00 p.m. DAL Maintenance Hangar: Static display for exterior viewing

To cover the retrofit of our current fleet of 133 -700s as well as the 36 planned deliveries (including today's) through September 30, 2004, Aviation Partners Boeing will provide 169 sets of blended winglets. The installations should be completed within two years. We are scheduled to begin receiving -700s from Boeing with winglets already installed in the fall of 2004.
