Could be the one which bumped into KL 747 with its port winglet a few days ago?

The winglet was probably damaged and placed on the Component Deviation List (CDL). Components that are not flight-critical may be missing from the a/c in certain situations. Many times this will require operational limitations, such as speed limitations, depending on the component. The A330 can have one winglet on CDL.

A NW A333 had a similar incident some months ago, could also be that one. I'm not sure if they've fixed that one yet, but maybe not given the maintenance issues recently.


Better to be nouveau than never to have been riche at all.

I have seen a few of these before and I like the look of the bus without the winglet better. Maybe this one was a hybrid to keep both winglet lovers and haters happy.

The flight had to leave before the mechanics could figure out how to get it back on.  duck
