Is this the first UA 757 with winglets? Sorry, I know others may feel differently, but the winglets just mean that UA is going to start using this as transatlantic planes, something of which I want no part of in any airlines, transatlantic on a 757.

BTW, are there any pics of the blended winglets for the 767 yet? What is the progress of those? Now that will be one sexy looking airplane. I wish they would have come up with them for the 777, even sexier!

Nice to see that they went with something other than a single color on the winglets (With or without a logo or website address on them as well). These winglets are the best looking ones an airline had put on a 757 to date. In some ways, it almost looks like a JetBlue tail pattern.

Gorgeous winglets. Good marketing for p.s. Customers think planes with winglets are "new" and "modern."

I just don't get this. If you're flying TATL on a 757 it's almost certainly because your market couldn't support a larger aircraft. You would happily fly a six-hour transcon on a 757, but to avoid an eight-hour TATL flight on a 757, you would fly to a larger airport and transfer, adding extra hours and hassle... when the economy seat in the 757 is the same economy seat that you will occupy in any other a/c?  confused   boggled

you know what, staying in a 777 or a any other double aisle airplane is much better than staying in a low ceiling tight single aisle 757 on transatlantic

Yes, I think it is the first and no, there are no plans to run a 757 TATL. Right now, the only 757's that are getting winglets are the ETOPS Hawaii birds and the P.S. 757's.

Because that Fedex livery is one that makes everyone stand up and take notice!  Yeah sure " Oohhh, lokkee at me. I've got a purple tail (said in Homer Simpson's voice)".

Yeah! Those look great! I guess the crowd is probably split on colors v.s. websites/logos, but I much prefer color schemes--text on winglets looks really tacky to me. Nice to see all the big U.S. carriers jumping on the winglet wagon with their 757s...really makes the plane look slick!

All I'm saying is that if I want to fly to say, Dusseldorf, I would much rather fly an AA 777 to LHR and connect onward with BA or something. I usually plan MY trips around the widebody long flights rather than worrying about the fastest way to get there. Other people either don't have that option, or don't care. Just expressing my wishes on transatlantic flights.

To whom has the winglet retrofit work been assigned? Is it somewhere in the US or is it at Ameco Beijing?
Btw. (off topic) is UA's SFO MOC still operational?

"Premium Service" birds that are specially configured with 12 first class seats, 26 business class, and 72 economy plus seats. They only fly SFO-JFK and LAX-JFK. The first and business seats are upgraded over their mainline domestic counterparts, and the service is enhanced. Really, a very nice ride!

SFO and LAX to JFK (PS), KOA, LIH, OGG, and HNL.

A P.S. 757 is the plane UA uses on JFL-LAX and JFK-SFO, specially configured 757s with international style F and C class and only Y+ instead of regular Y class.

Makes me wonder why UA didn't use the tuilp logo for the winglets. That would have been much better looking. But then again, I guess UA followed suit from AS to keep it modern looking....

Looking at the last pic, the winglet is a lot taller and more slender, and the tulip would look weird, much in the same way SAA's 737-800 winglets look odd. The logo just doesn't look right on the winglet.



A good landing is one you can walk away from. A great landing is if the aircraft can be flown again.
