Re: Alaska Airlines starts repainting Airbus fleet

Hi, I have a quick question - and forgive me if this has been answered.

Re: Rumour: WOW Air pulling out of ORD?

Southwest Airlines Split-Scimitar Retrofits?

Hi all - This is my first post to the forum. I live in an apartment about 2 miles east of KPHX and have been observing (ever so slowly) more of WN -700s built in the mid-2000s flying with split scimitar winglets.
