Current plan is for 11 75s to be so equipped. Many more are sure to follow ... But as to if all 41 will end up with bent wings ... I would expect the answer to be yes ... Eventually. But that is by no means certain.

What's tha chances of those wingletted 75s rotating through IAH? Maybe on some of the EWR-IAH-EWR runs in between Europe rotations?
