Which airlines use Scimitar Blended Winglets on their 757s?

Thu Jun 06, 2019 12:42 pm

Besides Icelandair and UA, which airlines use Scimitar Blended Winglets on their 757s?

Thanks

No one does as they are for 737s not 757s.

Scimitar blended winglets, not split scimitars. UA and Icelandair have 757s with winglets that have scimitars, which is just the top part of the 737 split scimitar modifications.

I would think it would be a good investment to at least retrofit the transatlantic and Hawaii DL birds with them considering the benefits come in when flown on longer routes.

As far as I've ever heard/seen, those two have the standard blended winglets. They're hard to tell apart at a distance, though, so I might have missed something (haven't been on a DL 757 since December, and it had the regular blended winglets).

Do they? I thought AA opted to stick with the standard winglet on their 757s.
Tiny, unreadable text leaves ample room for interpretation.

What level of improvement does "scimitar-ing" offer over conventional winglets on the 752's longer routes?

Scimitar has a winglet that adds the raked tip to the top of the 757 winglet. So you are incorrect in your assertion that the 757 doesn’t have a scimitar. What they don’t have is a split scimitar like the 737

Obviously they never bothered to update their website. Certainly doesn't mean it doesn't exist. In any event, here's a before and after.

So N14118 got the upgrade from the conventional to the scimitar winglet...which suggests that UA felt it was worth the cost to upgrade. Sure seems like a significant improvement, as minuscule as it may look. :scratchchin:

Looks like ships 3101-3141 got it, so all 41 Continental 757-200s.

Do they? I'm pretty sure they still have 757s out there that don't have winglets.
