Quoting Hawaiian763 (Thread starter): I have always wondered why I don't ever see a 737-600 with winglets? I see them installing them on -500's but most -700's, -800's and some -900's have them, but how come none on the -600's?
Probably because there are not as many of them in-service as with the other NG variants, and those they do operate them have declined to install them.

There aren't enough 737-600s out there whose operators want to put winglets on them. Same reason the -400 isn't getting them. There are a ton of 737-500s, like those with CO, and they're putting winglets on (nearly) everything. A number of airlines are also putting them on 737-300 aircraft.
I bet they woulda looked nice on the -600 though... and the -400, for that matter....

Well, the reason WestJet doesn't install them is because their 736s are mostly used on short hops, such as YYC-YQR, although there are some western Canada-YYZ flights with 736s. I too wondered what a 736 with winglets would look like, so here's what I came up with.

One of WS's two daily YYZ-LAS-YYZ flights has been a 736 most days this week. That's about 4.5 hrs. westbound and 4 hrs. eastbound.

Quoting Railker (Reply 10): And too, WJ often has a 736 crossing the country from YYJ to YYZ, or south from YYJ to LAX. The reason is that the 736, if I remember correctly, has better range than the 738 (not sure about the -700)
Since when has any airline flown non-stop to LAX from YYJ? WS has YYJ-LAS, but no LAX. WS 206/205 YYZ-YYJ-YYZ is typically operated by a 736, which is quite a long flight (for the type).
