Am I the only one to feel this way? I cringe everytime I see a plane with winglets. I know, I'd better get used to it.

How about having a contest.
Which airline has the Biggest darn winglets?
|Quoting Boeingguy1 (Reply 2):|
Who cares about the damn winglets, theyre not there for show... instead for fuel savings.
|Quoting Contrails (Thread starter):|
know that winglets are here to stay because they save fuel, make the plane more stable, and give the pax a little smoother ride, but gosh darn these things are ugly!!
