Which Airlines Are Using 757 Wingtips?

Sat Aug 05, 2006 7:05 am

Sorry if it has an obvious answer, but i am not sure.

Which airlines are actually using wingtips on their 757's?

I know AA, CO and Icelandair are, but anyone else?

NW and BA(i think) will both add bended winglets to their 757 fleet.

I believe (at least) all of US's Trans-Atlantic 757s will be fitted by next Spring.

NW yes, you'll see them on some of the 757-200 5600's in the spring of 2007. I think the number is still 10. They are thinking about putting them on the b757-300.

AA plans to retrofit all of their 757's with winglets.

I've not heard of BA adding them. As BA use their 757s for short-haul only, I doubt this will happen. Though I may be wrong - and they would look good!

The 757-300 is currently not certified for the blended winglets.

The currently certified aircraft are:

757-200
737-3/7/8/9ER

The next aircraft to be certified and fitted will be the 737-900.
The 767-300ER is being designed by Aviation Partners Inc.

The 757-300 is also in the works of being approved.

The 777-200/200ER/300 are planned in the next 5 years. The 777-200LR/300ER have the rakelets. They won't get the blended winglets. Neither will the 767-400, as it has the rakelets also.

I doubt BA will get them, as they're mostly flying higher density flights in Europe, which probably don't require winglets because of their length.

Put AY also in the Soon Department. They ordered them, but I don't think they have them just yet.

There is also another airline, which is so far the only one which has PW2000 powered 757s with Winglets. I don't recall which one though. Obviously they will not be alone anymore, once AY and NW get their winglets. Also, there is a private 757 with winglets. I can't find the picture at the moment, but I know it did come to SJO a few months back.

British Airways does not have any plans for adding such wing tips to their Boeing 757 fleet.

However I am sure if there was a solution for the Boeing 767 series 300 we would be interested…

Well the correct answer is: all of them. Now, if you ask which use winglets, that's a different question Big grin

Thanks for the update, KLM are intrested in winglets for the 739 as they plan to have all of the NG's wingleted!

I suspect CO and AS will also be intrested!

Dallas Mavericks 757 is also retrofitted with APB Blended Winglets completed in July. The aircraft is operated by PACE Airlines.
