I'm not an expert on this topic but, I think that this is very, very old news. I saw an add in airline magazine quite a few months back. To my knowledge CO was donating the test 73G for the project.

I think you're confusing something. CO donated a 757 to APB, not a 73G. And so far CO has only ordered winglets for 738s and 752, but no 73Gs yet. Not surprising if they really decided to add them on those as well.

I was wondering if this had already been mentioned, I havent really been on here lately. But I did search for it on the forums and found nothing reguarding the 700's and winglets. You may be thinking of the 800's.

Now that that's a done deal, let's keep hoping for the 753s. And, someone mentioned that APB had approached Conti about 762 work, and maybe 733s as well.
That was way unsubstantiated rumor, but hey, I can hope, can't I?
I think it would be really cool if Conti became the first major airline in the world to equip ALL of its aircraft with blended winglets. (I don't consider Copa to be very 'major')

Speaking of winglets, CO Boeing 757-224 ship 134 which currently has winglets, will be winglet-less soon. After completing the winglet certification work, the winglets will be removed (within 2 weeks from now) and the ship 134 will go back into service. Once the certification is complete (paperwork, paperwork, paperwork) it will again be equipped with the winglets (early June).

I too heard from an employee today that had a total list of all the aircraft that are getting winglets, where they will be, how many, and when they were to be outfitted. CO is scheduled to outfit 36 of thier 737-700's. After they do this, they will then return and outfit the rest of their 737-800's. When I get more info, I will pass it on....hope this helps.

Ship 728 is to be the first Winglet-ed 73G. It should be back in the air mid-month. Do not know plans call for winglets on all 36 of the type. The 738 Winglet program is complete at 34 aircraft .. Although it's a good bet more may follow at a later time.
