I flew out of PHL earlier today and noticed something for the first time. Do all of the US Airbii have winglets while none of their Boeings do? And is there any other airline that has a similar distinguishing mark between the A&B a/c?

Just Curious,
Sean

I believe that all of the A319/320/321/330s have winglets...they come that way.

The 737-300 is only becoming winglet capable. I do not think there is a kit for the 737-400s.

They come as standard on A330-300. The airlines don't have a choice about the the winglets.

The A319/A320 and A321 all come with winglets too but not as noticeable.

The original version of the A320 apparently didn't have winglets. But the version that US flies comes with it standard, same is the case of the A319, A321 and A330.


There is something special about planes....

The A318-321 all have winglets, except the first 18 A320 to come off the line (A320-100). IIRC most of these were later retrofitted.

As for distinguishing between the 737 and the 318-321, I find that the shapes of the tail and nose are quite different. Also the Airbi are higher off the ground and have rounder engines.
