I spoke w/ a CO B757 Cap last week about the winglets, and he said things aren't going too well. He said that they will prob lose Cat III and autoland ability due to a large amount of float on flare. Hopefully things will be worked out soon, I can't wait to see these in action.

There is only one 757 with winglets so far, and it is the CO plane we have seen, being used as the test bed for the new winglets. If all goes well, we will hopefully see them installed on more airlines. But for now, they are still in testing.


Why grab a Heine when you can grab a Busch?

I just saw the pics of the 757 with winglets and I think they look pretty sharp on this plane.

I saw this plane in person the other day. Really sleek looking, definately liked it. Suprisingly, the entire look of the plane seems to be changed by them.

Does Continental do an exceptional amount of test work or is it just me?

I remember seeing a magazine cover many moons ago of a CO DC-10 with winglets being tested.

I guess my question in all of this is: Does CO have a corporate culture of always trying to save money no matter what the cost? Or do they just have a lot of extra planes lying around where they can take them out of service for months at a time for development?

Wouldn't it have been more cost effective for everyone involved if Boeing went and pulled a 757 out of the desert to do all the testing and certification before they started pulling planes out of service.. Or did Boeing cut CO one sweet deal on the winglets in exchange for use of an airplane?

The Continental DC-10 with winglets was on lease to NASA for the testing. Similarly, the Continental 757 with winglets is being tested by Aviation Partners Boeing, not Continental.

Boeing is a member of the APB joint venture with API. This is a business arrangement. Boeing has little to do with the engineering or testing of the winglets - its an APB effort.
