Do Korean Air's A300 have winglets or have I just mistaken it for an A330?

Yepp, quite a number of Korean Air's A300s have so-called 'wing-tip fences' as they have a considerably large fleet of A300B4-600s (between 25 and 30 aircraft).

I didn't notice any winglets flying SEL-CJU 2 years ago.

Korean Air operated the winglet-less A300B4 and currently operates the A300-600.
My definition of cool ? Not trying so hard to be cool.

Korean Air has both 300-600 and 330s. The number of 306 is gradually reducing, but still 26 or more. 300B4 is completely phased out in 1996, I remember so.

DatamanA340,

I remember Korean Air operating two A300F4-200 until last year or something. Nevertheless, their pax 'classic' A300s are long gone - that's right.

To all: Please keep in mind that the so-called "A300-600" also is an A300B4... it's complete manufacturer designation is "A300B4-600". Although, you're all correct, it is referred to as the "A300-600" only.
