wasnt aware that DL had started to add winglets to the non ex-TWA aircraft. Saw a 752 at SNA this afternoon in the "wavy gravy" livery. I couldnt get the reg on it.

any info?

It was either N648DL or N650DL, both are in wavy gravy and have winglets. N649DL also has winglets, but is in the new colors.

There's several of them, the only regs I know off the top of my head is N648DL and N650DL.

Are there any others?

Are the non ex-TW birds being used for transatlantic ops, too?

Not that I know of. I think DL wants to have some of 757s used on transcons and longer flights out of ATL have the fuel benefits that winglets provide.

I'm sure this has been asked (and answered) many, many times, but how many of the non-ex-TW airplanes are getting winglets? What about the 757s Delta is inheriting from Northwest? I seem to recall they (NW) only planned on equipping the TATL birds with winglets.

IIRC, all of the ex-TW birds will be winglet-equipped and outfitted for transatlantic ops. I don't know about the ex-NW birds, though.

Any chance of DL just deciding to install winglets across the entire 752 fleet like AA and CO?

In the long run yes. I believe that all 763ERs will get them to.
I got an email the other day from someone that went to some kind of meeting or something like that that said (along with a bunch of other things) "all aircraft that can get winglets will get them incase fuel spikes again. Almost all of our 737s have them and we have started work on our 767-300ERs and our 757-200s"
Also Delta has options with APB for all of the aircraft in the DAL-S fleet to get them.



yep.

The only 752s that NWA wasn't planning on wingletting were the early 5500 series airplanes. All TATL 5600s have winglets, as do a chunk of the domestic, non-ETOPS 5600s.

Now, I could be wrong as I was taxiing when I saw it, but I thought I saw N750AT at JFK the other day and I thought it had winglets on it. It could have been 650, but I sure thought it was 750 which is an ETOPS bird from ATA.

N750AT at JFK

very likely, the ex-TWA 757 do several TATL from JFK.

Places like MAN, DUB, BRU, LYS, SNN, EDI, AGP, FRA. I believe that is most of the routes they operate out of JFK.

They do some transcon and some Inter hub flying as well.

Here's 648, just to complete the trifecta.

The airplane that I saw was not an ex-TWA airplane as it was in the "wavy gravy" paint. I was taxiing in N721TW so I am well aware of the 75E operations.

Flew on 650 out of JAX a few weeks ago.

In chatting with the cockpit crew, they said they did not notice any appreciable changes in the "feel" of the aircraft or handling, but had to be aware that the wingspan had increased slightly!

No different from a qualification or training point of view ..



I love to fly, and it shows!

No NWA 753s have winglets. I don't think the company was ever planning on it, but with the merger and the installation of winglets on CO's 753 fleet, that might change.

Huh? CO didnt merge with anyone.  confused 

I read somewhere that the NW 753's were getting the winglet mods....I don't remember where I read that.

I think he was referring to NWA's merger with DL, and DL would be more inclined to install winglets than NWA due to the fact of DL being obsessed with following CO who are installing winglets on their 757-300s.
