I recently flew AirTran from DCA
, and a question occurred to me while on board the ATL
leg: do airlines that fly the 737NG, and who are currently in the process of retrofitting them with winglet kits, try to schedule the airplanes that have been retrofitted on the longer legs to more fully realize the advantages of the winglets? On my flight to LAS
, the 737 we were on did not have winglets (the one coming back did). Both DCA
legs did not have winglets either. I'm hoping OPNL will weigh in, but are there any dispatchers from AA
, or ATA who also can weigh in?
