Just uploaded today posted by my good freind Felipe Escalona. First Picture of a Boeing 737-700 with Blended Winglets on A.net operated by copa airlines of panama. They recieved the aircraft about 2 weeks ago and it is operating the Panama-Medellin and Santo Domingo run , and Will start operating que Panama-Buenos Aires run,the longest 737 route in the world.
Copa was the first to operate the 737NG in Latin America and now becomes the first to operate the 737-700 with winglets in america and the second in the world. (Kenya airlines was recived a 737-700WL a week before copa) they have a fleet of they have a fleet of 9 737-700 and some 737-200´s they will recieve 3 more 737-700´s this year and have ordered more. Also they will retrofit their older 700´s with winglets. For more info go to http://www.copaair.com

Just out of curiosity: are any of these aircraft ex-Midway birds, or are they factory-fresh? A few photos were recently posted on the datebase showing a couple ex-Midway 737-700's being fitted with winglets. Any thoughts?
