During this week LAN started with the Blended Winglets installation process here in Santiago. The first aircraft to receive this tecnology will be the CC-CWG and expects to leave the hangar in March 2009.

In 2009 LAN Airlines expects to modified part of its B763s fleet (passenger) to continue in 2010 with the installation of blended winglet in the B767 Freighter fleet.

LAN expects to save between 5% and 13% in fuel consumption depending of the type of the operations. The first B763s with blended winglets will be operate in longhaul route as LIM-MAD, GYE-MAD, SCL-LAX.

I don't know what its the current situation of the unique America B767 with winglets. In the case of LAN the original plan was start with the installation in Nov. 2008 to make the first flight the last week of December 2008 and enter into the service in January 2009.

Thanks for the notice Ricardo.

Interestingly, there is another type of winglet that has been or is being tested by Boeing and Aviation Partners, called spiroid, that seems to give more benefits over the blended winglet, such as reducing vortices..."which represent nearly half the induced drag genereated during cruise flight"...

Its winglets were removed after the test and it re-entered service with AA shortly afterwards

When will DL start having their winglets installed on their 763ERs? They have a lot of a/c to do. I look forward to seeing them. They will have a nice clean look!

This is second hand from a different thread but (as indicated above) the winglets have been removed for now and AA is awaiting FAA approval. I assume that means that when the paperwork is done they will install them for revenue service.

Can't wait to see the pics of the first LAN bird!



...are we there yet?

Why...? Didn't AA go ahead with installation across the fleet...? Probably not in a financial position to be spending $$$...

Yes, the numbers are correct. The 13% of saving in fuel can be achieved with a payload restriction. LAN considers that will not affect in the revenues of company because the important savings in terms of fuel consumption could be compensate by the excellent financial results that LAN during the 4th quarter 2008, where the yield revenue increased in 10%.

In normal operation LAN expects to save 5% in fuel consumption.

It's nice to see an aircraft that was written off as old and uneconomical continue to defy the skeptics and odds. Didn't LAN receive several of these 767s within the past 1-2 years?

The winglets were still in testing. Once the testing was finished, the winglets were removed so the FAA could approve them.

No they are not. Testing is over. That's why AA removed awaiting FAA approval which has happened. Hence why LAN and DL have begun installations.

Thats what I was saying, so basically, what I said is still correct! If it wasn't correct, then LAN and DL wouldn't have started to install them!
