Nice looking bird! Anyone know what is happening with air NZ's sharklet-320s? I thought NZ was going to be launch :S

A visitor from Sweden posted Wed July 18, 2012:
Beautiful aircraft. Though I must say, I thing I prefer the older wingtip device. Airbus started wingtip devices long before Boeing, I'd prefer they stuck with their original designs rather than something that more closely resembles what Boeing copied.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Wed July 18, 2012:
To visitor from USA, these ARE sharklets, Airbus have written that term all over their test craft and in press releases, they ARE new and different to the Boeing desgn, I'm not an engineer so I don't know how but they are which is why they took so long to develop, also their old 'triangles' are known as 'fences'

Great photo, gives the 320 a whole new profile!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Wed July 18, 2012:
To the first comment poster on this picture: They have never claimed they are 'new'. They cannot call them winglets, or blended winglets, because that is a trademark, hence they have to call them something else. There are pros and cons for each design of wingtip fence (a320, a380) and winglet (737ng, a320neo). Even Boeing has changed the winglets on the 737max to a similar design from that of the MD-11 (maybe Boeing are going backwards ?)

A visitor from - posted Wed July 18, 2012:
Airbus calls them Sharklets. Check their website.

A visitor from Mexico posted Wed July 18, 2012:
And I took it for a Boeing 737-700. T.B.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Wed July 18, 2012:
They have actually 30 A320neo on order! And also: Very nice looking Aircraft!

A visitor from Australia posted Tue July 17, 2012:
If Qatar only have 1 A320 on order does this mean it will be the only aircraft in the fleet with sharklets?

A visitor from United States posted Tue July 17, 2012:
Excellent its like looking at a whole new plane!

A visitor from United States posted Tue July 17, 2012:
You know i used to think the a-three hundred and a-three-ten would be upgraded with folded wing tips

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Tue July 17, 2012:
Looks wierd with sharklets

A visitor from United States posted Tue July 17, 2012:
They are "winglets" not "sharklets." Airbus finally figured these were better than triangles on their wingtips...and claim they are new.
