AAflyer said:We also have options for another 120 winglets for the 757. The one for the 737 was pretty much a gift from Aviation Partners to see if we like it. Smart marketing move.
HawkDrvr said:Anyone have any data on how much fuel they save? In other words, how many pounds does it save on a 757 going from EWR-LAX ???
fokkerjet said:Kind of like what McDonnell Douglas did with the MD80's......give a few away on very cheap leases and hope for a sale
Tomct said:Don't understand why it took them so long? If you want to save money, it is the only way to go! Now, if DAL could get them onboard! Most of the articles in ATW say they will end up saving anywhere from 3-5% of fuel! Sounds pretty good to me!
what will be covering the 757 domestic routes if they shift to intl? 80's?
does this mean more 80's routes will come to eagle (i hope not)? we just got, DFW-PIT, ORD-BWI, DFW-MDW
