DJ 737-800s And Winglet Options

Mon Jan 13, 2003 6:45 am

I realise much discussion has already taken place here re the decision of airlines to use/not use winglets on their 737 NGs.

I was at MEL on Friday night meeting my daughter off a DJ flight when it suddenly struck me that DJ have a mix of 737-800s: some with, some without winglets.

I'm pretty sure that all QF 737-800s have winglets fitted, so my question is: why would DJ opt for a mix?

They just decided midstream to begin ordering them would be my guess.

They _could_ limit those with winglets to the cross-continent flying or longer routes and keep the non-wingleted ones on the shorter routes.

Who knows. Its an expensive retrofit package.
