Great news for Boeing! I saw it on the website and wondered why nobody mentioned it here. But after a search I found it. Did anyone else notice the 737 with winglets? That wasn't mentioned in the article. Will the 737-700 have winglets? I know it's in the process of being certified for commercial use but...just curiours? It does look like an -800 though.

Currently only the -800 has been selected with the winglets, but Boeing will put winglets on a -600, -700 or -900 if requested by an airline. Although, I think it is more practicle to winglet the -900, rather than the -600 or -700, seeing both of those models have a large range. One would also have to look at the extra weight produced by the winglets on the smaller "baby" versions.

All 767s are available with the new 777-style interior, but I don`t know if Air Gabon will select it for their 763..
The LR 744 is more expensive and if Air Gabon don`t need the extra range, why bother?
