Pretty sure those were tested on and offered as an option on the 737-800 and 737-900ER though, just like the sharklets and the A320ceo.

No they are integral to the MAX and were never offered for the NG.

You could get aftermarket split tips from ABP. they are decidedly different products.

Why is this even a thread?

The 737-800 IS an older version of the MAX. As is the NG, as is the 100, 200, 300, 400, 500, 600, 700, and 900.

That's what Boeing created and sold, on that very basis.

Just like riding a bike.


The 800 is an older version of the 737. It is not a MAX


Of course it's an older version of the MAX. The 737 is now called a MAX. It's the same bloody plane.


Nobody calls it a Boeing 737-800MAX.

The MAX is grounded, the NGs are not. An NG is still an NG. The whole series is not a MAX, nobody says “look! It’s a Boeing MAX!” It’s just the new planes that are MAX.

It's not "wrong", but its just somehow doesn't sound right.


It's a perfect description of the plane. I don't understand how "the media" misrepresented the situation.
It is not wrong, and it's sounds logical.

What should they called instead? The other B737 that doesn't crashed?

I don't understand the rage on this at all. It's like some Boeing fanboys got angry that MAX got grounded and they can't do anything about it because they know damn well Boeing is wrong this time. And they take it out on everyone that report on any Accidents or the people who dissatisfied with what Boeing do by blaming "The Media" by making lots of false accusations to make it seems like the MAX isn't bad at all.

You missing the point.
The emergency landing was a 737NG, which has nothing to do with the two 737MAX crashed.

The news was trying to tie the incidents together by stating 737-800....an older version of 737MAX. But the statement serves no purpose at all, nor it helps any reader understanding the emergency incident.

It's to make sure there is no confusion with the readers. By stating that the -800 is the older variants of the MAX. It meant that the MAX is still being grounded now and the aircraft flying is the -800 which is the older version of the MAX that doesn't get grounded. It helps distinguished between the other B737 series and the MAX.

So people who doesn't know much about aviation wouldn't left asking questions like : "Isn't that being aircraft being grounded right now? Why is it flying?"
