UA 757's With Winglets

Mon Dec 10, 2007 9:22 pm

Hey all,

Awhile back there was the rumor that a bunch of the UA 757's were going to get the blended winglet mods. More specifically, it was going to be the 55XX series and 57XX series (ETOPS and PS Transcon, respectively). So far though, only 5717 has received winglets:

Also recently, fleet#'s 5550 and 5551 were just painted in the new colors, the first ETOPS birds to get n/c.

However.....no winglets on them. So, does anyone know if just the 57XX PS Transcon birds are getting the winglets, or will the 55XX's eventually get them too??

Thanks for all responses!!

Oh yes, our Lady Winglet, pride of our 757 fleet. As stated the plan is to get all current P.S and ETOPS winged. I think the plan calls for a 2009 completion.
