Just saw picture on a.net of Delta 763 with winglets in Hong Kong. Is that where they have to go to be installed. And does the 763 have the range with winglets to do HKG to New York or Atlanta. I wouldn't think so.

DL does MX in Hong Kong, so chances are good it was there for some MX ...

Are the 767 winglets approved? I know an AA '67 was the testbed for 'em ...

(that must be a sight to see, given how tall those winglets are)

What routes will this plane be on? It's only the 767-300ER that will receive winglets right?

Not only have the winglets on the 767 been approved, but there are already a few flying already. DL has at least 3 or 4 763ERs with winglets already in scheduled service...

I thought wing modifications were being done in HKG, and the actual winglet installation was being done in GSO?

 checkmark  Correct. 192, 1610, and 1611 all have winglets and are in service.

Yes, and only 30 of them.

Any data yet on how the winglets are impacting performance or fuel burn?

HAECO does the HMVs for DL's 767s. (its kinda funny because the 763As have to fly all over the world to get to HKG LOL) Anyways the set the wing up to get the winglet then someone in GSO puts it on. I was hopinh TechOps would get the work but guess not.  Sad

I believe the planes that have got them have lie-flats (pilots only) which means 12+ hour trips (aka LAX-GRU,ATL-LOS,ATL-ATH etc.)

Quoting DL767captain (Reply 2):

Of the 76 family yes. 737s and 757s are also getting them. Delta has options to put winglets on all 737/757/763ER fleet (DAL-S only....not sure what DAL-N has)

Quoting Pilotboi (Reply 5):

With options for all 57.



yep.

It is almost useless to search the forums for this because I just did and did not come up with anything relevant to the DL 767 in HKG.

The 767 in the photo had the winglets put on by HAECO. I can't say about the wing mods but obviously they did not do the mods at HAECO then fly to GSO for winglet installation then back to HKG to be in this photo, as is being hinted at here!!

I flew N192DN ATL-CPH on April 4th and I was amazed by the size of the winglets compared to the plane itself. I do believe I have some pictures I might be able to upload later.

This plane is still in the old colors! Wonder when it will get the new paintjob to go along with the winglets.



Flying in the middle seat of coach is much better than not flying at all!

Any chance that DL will bring all of their MX back in house where it belongs?


Why are people so against low yields?! If lower yields means more people can travel abroad, i'm all for it

I was thinking that this thread was getting repetitive. However I have seen a lack of NW DC-9 threads.... whatever happened to those?

Yeah... you would think as much as DL touts their TechOps they would do work in house, I saw some pretty hefty maint going on when ive been there... IMO it should be in house.

757-200's. All that were slated to get winglets have recieved them.
