Blended Winglets for OO-TUC and OO-JAP

Post by golf1411 »

Not sure if this was already mentioned:
The 2 B763 of Jetairfly will go on heavy maintenance and will both return in may with blended winglets installed.

Flights for JAF will be operated by Arkefly until both planes will return to their homebase.

What does 'warning! critically set tool' mean? Not that I would touch it anyway, but I wonder what they mean.

Actually, the OO-TUC is already back in Brussels and the OO-JAP just left for maintenance (and WL installation)...

Are you sure she has left? ACARS website show her operating flight JAF303 yesterday, which means the flight you just mentioned. And PH-AHQ left BRU yesterday as TFL063P to FRA.

Dear All,

Now the OO-TUC have brand new winglets :D so is it possible to estimate the time saved on a flight from BRU to PUJ for example?

Thanks in advance,
Serggioboeing
Best regards,

I don't think it goes any faster with the winglets. You might save a little time on refueling though.

No time advantage indeed, only fuel savings AFAIK.
