Talk about cool aircraft 717 & 777 with winglets!

Quote:
Additional Blended Winglet benefits include reduced engine maintenance costs, quieter and more environmentally friendly operations, and a distinctly high-tech image. As GOL operates its 737NGs at one of the highest utilization rates in the industry, an average of 14 block hours per day, the Company expects the Blended Winglets will save the Company approximately 3% to 4% per aircraft annually in its fuel requirements.

Aviation Partners Boeing is a joint venture of Aviation Partners, Inc. and The Boeing Company created to develop and market performance enhancing wingtip devices for Boeing aircraft. Their patented Blended Winglets are available for 737 Next Generation aircraft, 737 Classic aircraft as well as the Boeing 757-200. Activities are also underway to develop and certify wingtip devices for the Boeing 717, 767-300ER, and 777-200ER along with the heritage Douglas MD-80 aircraft.
