Is a 737-800 winglet a max?

Is a 737-800 winglet a max?

On some 737-800 NG Variants you’ll see a little winglet going downwards from the ‘L’ shape. You can tell it’s not the Max, as the little winglet will look like an ‘addition’ almost as if it was an afterthought. Like it’s out of place, unlike on the 737 Max, where the whole winglet is one big shape.

Is Airbus A321 better than Boeing 737?

The 737-900ER has a standard 2-class passenger capacity of 177 seats and a range of 2950 nautical miles. Maximum takeoff weight is about 85.1t. In my opinion the A321 is better, with more range, a higher MTOW, more powerful engines and better passenger comfort with a wider cabin, meaning wider seats.

What are enhanced winglets?

Improved wing efficiency translates to more payload, reduced fuel consumption, and a longer cruising range that can allow an air carrier to expand routes and destinations. To produce as much forward thrust as possible, the winglet’s airfoil is designed with the same attention as the airfoil of the wings themselves.

Which winglet is best?

The shark fin-alike winglet was overall the most efficient design, followed shortly by the famous blended design found in many mid-sized airliners. The worst performing designs were surprisingly the fenced and spiroid designs, which had efficiencies on par with the wing without winglet.
