The 757 is a great looking aircraft, Continentals 757's will soon have winglets, how nice will that look.

You may have to wait a while to see a picture of them.

Here is a rendition close to what it should look like:

CO's first winglet-ed 757 should appear sometime in Summer '05. The first two 738's w/Winglets (looks like ships 285 and 289) are scheduled for delivery near the end of July.

That 757 looks sharp.

What routes will they be on?

Too bad I don't live by CO / KMCO), USA - Florida">MCO anymore, I am missing out on a lot of new aircraft due to arrive in the next year or so that would probably fly into CO / KMCO), USA - Florida">MCO

Routes are yet to be determined. However the winglets do their best work cruise altitude so expect to see them on the transcon and transatlantic flights.
Interestingly enough, ALL of CO's new aircraft fly into CO / KMCO), USA - Florida">MCO on delivery from Boeing. The Mx base there installs the IFE and Phone systems before the plane enters service.

I thought the 757's were supposed to have blended winglets. Anyways, looks exactly like a Tu-204 to me...hehe

And I thought the 757 couldnt get much more fuel efficient. They going to stick those things on the 777's next? How bout a NW DC-10 with winglets. That would be a sight.

"How bout a NW DC-10 with winglets."

That's a great idea! But, to save on mechanics, why not just buy an MD-11? Nuts

I never really under stood the winglets other than that they look cool and make their flying a bit more effishant. How much further than a 737-700 w/ winglets fly compaired to a 737-700 w/o winglets? Same with the 757 (727 too)

UA777-Even though winglets will provide a small boost in range, their primary purpose is that of efficiency. CO strings the 757 out to the best of it's capabilites with it's EWR and CMH to Europe flights (though, I don't think that CMH is a regular service unless someone can correct me). Within the contiguous United States, range for the 757 is not an issue, and dually for Europe the 757 can handle those routes with still some buffer to maximum performance operations. Where the real benefit of the winglets is going to come in is fuel savings. By making the wingtip just that much more efficient, the fuel savings are going to be astronomical (does anyone have the projected figures for this by the way?? I know they're circulating somewhere).

Does CO plan to retrofit its current -700s and -800s with winglets as well?

You mean CLE, right? And, yes, since 911, CLE-LGW has been seasonal, although CLE-LAS 757 flights run all year.

Yes, I meant CLE. Thanks for catching that Massey. Don't know where I got CMH from  Smokin cool.

It's only 100 miles down the road. Word I hear is that first flight for the 757W, if we can call it that, will be in late Oct/early Nov, with commercial service planned for April if all tests go well.

I do not care if they have 757 winglets on them. I flew on [actually should say endured] the CLE to LGW route in coach one time. Winglets may give them better performance on long flights but the inside still is horrible. The B777 is so much better on long range flights. I understand the logic because of 757 trans Atlantic because of smaller loads but I would rather connect in EWR . But having said all this it really makes these planes so much more attractive with the winglets.  Big thumbs up

767, if they can find an airline partner to push it forward.

CO could even get involved as their 762/763 fleet is pretty young.

Sorry, but I liked the old look of the 757, no winglets. A 757 with winglets, as posted by DeltaMD11, just looks too much like a B738, and that is fine, but doesn't look good, at least to me, on a 757.

If I am not mistaken.... the Tupelov TU-204, a Russian airliner that looks just like the B757 had winglets right from the start of manufacturing

Anyone know where the winglets will be installed on the 757, and where the testing program will be based out of?

I am hoping for BFI.

rather doubt that... as they've already gone with rakes on the 764ER
