It makes it look ugly like they were my favourite good looking plane but now there not. They already have good,fuel efficiency but company’s are really wasting money on ugly looking planes that were good looking before now

To some people it may look ugly, but it helps reduce the fuel costs.

They’re not wasting money. In the long run they’ll probably save more than if they didn’t have the split scimitars.

You seriously think that publicly listed companies are paying money to increase operating costs? If there isn’t cost savings to be had that is more than the cost of the mod, airlines won’t do it.
