Also, according to this thread: Delta 767 On The Ground In ANC (by jourdan747 Dec 29 2010 in Civil Aviation) , there are four Delta 767's at HAECO, where winglet installation has been done in the past. Two of these aircraft are N198DN and N178DN, according to that thread. The others maybe N173DN, which reported has been pulled from storage for return to service, and N197DN, which does not show up on any flight trackers since early December.

I am also a DM and have not flown on a DL wingletted 767. The winglets are quite large I saw one at MEM back in early Dec. My guess is they will fly on all TATL or long routes to take advantages of the fuel savings.

The two routes that will practically always see the 767 with winglets is JFK-CAI, and SEA-PEK.
Quoting audidudi (Thread starter): I am curious to know how many Delta B767s have winglets.
I have a partial list and if anyone can add to it please do so. I am a DM with Delta but have yet to fly on one of these!

Routes that will also see 763/W are JFK-AMM and JFK/ATL-ACC, which use the 76T ships. The rest of the 763ER fleet with winglets visits scattered destinations in the TATL/TPAC network, but a bunch have been caputed rotating through AMS.
I personally have flown on N1611B (CAI-JFK) and N185DN (JFK-ATL) with winglets. You can catch them on the JFK-ATL/ATL-JFK runs, but it's luck of the draw since they may or may not be swapping a ship with winglets between the hubs. Same with ATL-DTW/SEA which also sees 763ERs.

On a trip to Barcelona, Spain, on December 29, I saw two DL 763s parked side-by-side, one with and one without winglets.
I also noticed earlier that a DL 763 was in storage in the desert, but I cannot locate the photo now. Are some of these ships being retired? Would that partially explain why some of these birds have winglets and others are not receiving the modification?
According to the caption in this photo, N1610D was the first DL 763 to receive winglets:

Quoting c5load (Reply 7): Will any domestic 763s be getting winglets?
No that is not part of the plan going forward. However I can't say for sure if the (4) ETOPS birds for Hawaii will not get them. Assume they won't since the domestic-only ones are not slated to get them.
