Here's little trick: Hover your mouse over the picture, right-click (if you use any Windows OS), select "Properties" ("Picture properties" in some browsers). You'll get an answer in an eye-wink!  Smile

Not a big suprise, but the wingletted B767 looks pretty nice!

Is American adding winglets to their B767-200s or just the -300s?

Winglets look great. Too bad the interior upgrades do not pertain to the Y cabin.

Are the -200s receiving winglets? I thought, and according to the APB website, that only the -300ER/F's were currently in development....

The winglets look sick on the 67!!

I hope AC decides to put them on some of their B763s, and if they do, I hope they paint a small maple leaf on them.

Roughly around 360nm further.

According to the AA press release....up to 360nm further.


Also, after reading the release from AA, it is only the 58 767-300ER's which will be outfitted

how come they aren't using the raked wingtips like on the 764ER and 77L and 77W and even the 787? I thought raked wingtips were better for longer range and winglets were better for short range. The wingtips look good tho!

This looks really good. I did wonder when this might happen. AA has some pretty new 763s, so I can see the need for these, as they wont be leaving the fleet anytime soon

Aren't raked winglets harder to install and would keep them out of service longer? They look sweet. Outside of the 360nm range addage, what kind of fuel economy improvements are we looking at?

I looked at some numbers produced to study the benefit of winglets for 757 and the 767 claims seem to match the 757 claims very closely. If so, the average improvement for most flight profiles will be in the 40% – 50% range of their high number. That is, a range improvement of about 140 – 180 nm, payload improvement of about 4800 – 6000 lbs and fuel savings of 2.6% – 3%.

Aren't winglets a bit pointless (if not counter-productive) on short trips?

30 Ua777222 : I apologize for the dbl post. Computer is on the fritz. Thanks guys.
31 Post contains images LVHGEL : Unless they find a way of upgrading the upgrade made to the upgrdaded upgrade, in which case quite possible will see the 100 years old BUFF
32 SixtySeven : IMO it looks like junk. a nice wing is one without garbage hanging off them.
33 Post contains images PHLBOS : Didn't AA retire their 762s a few years ago? I know DL & UA did; not sure about CO.
34 AAFLT1871 : Nope. Still flying. JFK-LAX comes to mind
35 Longhornmaniac : No, they still run them on: LAX-JFK SFO-JFK MIA-JFK JFK-BDA I think that's it. Cheers, Cameron

37 Flynavy : American retired the non-ER 767-200's a few years back. The -200ER models are still in the fleet, less the airframe lost at LAX recently.

40 Whappeh : US Airways better get their hands on these.
41 Twolz2rn : how tall are the winglets on the 757 and 767?
42 ERAUgrad02 : i'd like to know this too. also how much larger are these compared to 737 winglets?
43 ConcordeBoy : I guess I'm in the minority. Though I of course understand the benefits provided, I find (blended) wingletted 767s to be absolutely repulsive-looking.
44 A388 : Refitting the 762's with the winglets doesn't make much sense as they won't be staying in AA's fleet for that long anymore I assume. Because of this i
45 Vasu : Twin-engined MD11! And I like it
46 Thebry : The winglets on both the 737 and the 757 are 8-feet 2-inches tall. The winglets for the 767 are a whopping 11-feet tall. The prices for these things
47 WestJetYQQ : SWEET! I was expecting it to look dumb like the 777 winglets, but it looks completely natural here!
48 AirlineAV8tor : CO should be flying with them before AA. CO worked with Boeing hand in hand with the 757 (being their launch customer), and while halfway through that
49 Longhornmaniac : Am I the only one that can't see the picture? Apparently so. Can anyone put a link up, as well perhaps? Thanks! Cheers, Cameron
50 Post contains images YYZatcboy :
51 PC12Fan : Winglets give the option of longer range, or the capability to increase payloads on the "original range".
52 LMP737 : Since adding winglets requires the wing to be beefed up the work will be done at AFW. That's because they have the expertise and the tooling for that
53 UA777 : I just flew from Cancun, Mexico two days ago and could have sworn I saw a Continental Airlines 767 with winglets. Can anyone confirm this?
54 InbarD : Winglets makes the 767 look even better. Just like winglets made the 757 look awesome.
55 Byrdluvs747 : JFK-SAN on Saturdays
56 Raggi : I can confirm that you did NOT see a CO 76 w/ winglets. What you saw was probably a 752- as all CO 752s have winglets. That or a 737... raggi
