Looks awesome as I think ALL 767-300ER w/ winglets do. I just wish they'd make a version for the many non-ER & -200's out there.

Looks awesome! Didn't know they were going to paint them with the koru on. The 744s are just the teal/blue colour.

I saw it in NAN today and think it looks awesome. As it was coming in to land it looked like a giant 737. Now these would look very cool on the 777s.

I hope the company I work for will put them on their 767.

I wasnt aware that the winglets make them go any faster , I thought it just improved fuel consumption .

Surely with winglets and less drag it will make flights PER - AKL quicker with our wonderful jetstreams?

I know that the 763's use to come to LAX. Are they currently used to LAX or are there any plans to cause I would love to get a few photos of these birds.

Beautiful bird. The 763 is too boring without winglets. With winglets it's gorgeous.

The article stated:
"Air New Zealand hopes that new 3.4m high wing tips on its fleet of Boeing 767 aircraft will reduce its fuel consumption by more than six million litres a year."

"The blended winglets make the aircraft's wing more efficient by reducing drag, cutting fuel use and emissions"


But what about the extra weight of the winglets plus paint?Isn't it going to reduce the benefit of fitting winglets on the wingtips?I can imagin that the weight of those huge winglets also cost some extra fuel,or am i wrong??

Still come twice a week - once on AKL-RAR-LAX and once on AKL-TBU-APW-LAX.

The published benefits of the winglets would take the extra weight into account. I am sure NZ will know pretty quickly what the improvement in ZK-NGC's fuel burn is.

I like how the NZ winglets aren't plain, but I can't get too excited about 767 winglets. I really like winglets on a 737, and love a 757 either with or without them, but I still prefer a 767 with the original look. Maybe it's related to the large wingspan. I guess I prefer the A330/747 style with such a large airplane. Still, I'm sure that NZ will love the increased efficiency. Who cares about looks in that case.

This plane flew into MEL last night. Was definately a surprise to see it, but it looked great. Certainly suits the aircraft.

Well in theory winglets reduce drag and improve lift. So by doing so an aircraft doesn't have to fly at such a high AoA (Angle of Attack). This results in either less fuel burn, faster speed, or both.

25 Spotterke : Ok,makes sence...anyway it's looking great on the 767 !
26 Zkpilot : I'm not sure if I'm reading this right, but I'm reading it as you like how a 767 has a large wingspan. The thing is that the winglets increase the wi
27 MSPNWA : You're reading it correctly. I do like the large wingspan, but the high angle blended winglets just don't mesh as well, IMO, as lower angled winglets
28 NZ748 : Well done on the efficiency savings AirNZ. They look great!
29 Lexy : Darn good looking airplane I must say! Of course, Daryl is a top notch photog too! Love his work in HKG!
30 Kiwiandrew : which NZ 767 is next for winglets , and when ? also , when should the last one be done by ?
31 SunriseValley : [ according to NZ1 ....NCK . All will be fitted between June and November by HAECO in HKG during scheduled maintenance.
32 NZ1 : That's correct. HAECO are doing the block C checks and winglet installation at the same time. NZ1
33 CX flyboy : ZK-NCK is now sitting outside HAECO with winglets. I suspect it will be ferried back to AKL in the coming few days.
34 CX flyboy : ZK-NCK is due to ferry to Osaka this morning where I am assuming it will operate a scheduled flight back to AKL this evening or tomorrow so expect it
35 Icebird757 : Thanks! Do you know what days of the week and maybe arrival times(local) that would be?
36 DavidByrne : NZ14 ex RAR arrives Sundays at 1230 NZ26 ex TBU-APW arrives Tuesdays at 1340
37 ZK-NBT : ZK-NCG was in LAX this Sunday 9th August. Wasn't at the airport but NCK operated the PER service on Monday afternoon.
