Why does the new 737-800/900 have the weird winglet at the end of the wing
Fuel efficiency :)
To reduce drag
And are called split scimitar winglets
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.
Looks don’t matter on aircraft, fuel efficiency does.
To a degree.
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.
It looks slightly better to be honest
they are called new split scimitar winglets, designed by Boeing and they are more fuel efficient than the old ones! :)
Have you no eyes?! They are gorgeous!😍
It looks a lot better now, I don’t know what you’re talking about
The -7 is a it short, but my favourite part is the winglets!
lol thats a realy short 737 lol
Just to show off the wing lel
It has dual overwing exits now?
I know (the symmetrical split winglet is sooo sexy) but the fuselage lol
It had dual all the time :/ well the -100/200 didn’t lol
The 737-700 never had dual exits.
