I wouldn't say they are "the rage" in the US, more of a calculated financial decision. I believe the Europe routes are shorter than the typical US carrier's route, and the winglets offer a more substantial benefit with a longer route.

One of the main reasons that blended winglets are used in certain cases is to keep the wingspan down. Raked wingtips on a 737 would cause the airplane to fall into a different category of airplane, and reduce the amoun of compatible airports and gates.

RE: Northwest Finally Confirms 787 Order

I'm a big fan of the 787, but I can't help but to say the order surprises me. I thought Northwest would stick with commonality. Congrats to Boeing on the pickup, can't wait to see one in Northwest colors.

RE: Boeing Should Be Ashamed

I honestly thought people in this forum would be a little more educated about aircraft to be this shallow. This thread is an embarrassment to the forum.

I mean, I've seen some ridiculous posts on here before, but this one takes the cake. *shaking head*
