News out of Chinatimes.com, starting in March, China airlines will start to add winglets on their fleet of 737-800s, which will save millions of dollars of jet fuel a year, as well as reduce noise on takeoffs.

How many airlines have installed winglets on their 737s?

WN
AA
CA

That's all I can think of from the top of my head...

Very good, the more the better as it makes the 737 look so much better.

Other than the 736 & 739, who isn't adding or thinking about winglets to thier 737NG fleet.
CI & KE do fly some longer haul flights with the 737NG (more so with the CI than KE) and surprised they haven't done this sooner.

Heey thanks for the corrections, I knew I was missing a few, but how could I forget Virgin Blue and Air Pacific. Shame on me.

And yes, airlines are finally seeing the benefits of these blended winglets.

Which other 737 operators can we expect to install winglets on their 737NG fleet? How about DL?

Regards,

A388
