Used 737 MAX has no winglets

Posted by Astrus319 on 29 March 2023 - 06:02 AM

I recently purchased a few 737-9s from the used aircraft page (on S4B) and they ended up not having winglets! I found this a bit strange since all my other 737-MAX 9 aircraft had winglets when ordered normally. (not to mention that they all do irl) This apparently didn't affect their range, but does affect the fuel flow a little bit. Also, there seems to be no way to add winglets to them after the fact.

its got to do with how the split scrimiitar data works, plus the fact that in the AE sense, winglets are the traditional blended winglets as seen on like the 737NG

Thats not it.
Used aircraft just do not have winglets. At all. Even if they are required on the aircraft (Like the 747-400, A340-300. A330-300, A340-500, etc). The used aircraft market just doesn't generate planes with winglets, you can only add winglets on planes that get them at a later date (Such as the 737 Classic, A320ceo, 757-200 and -300, the 767-300ER, etc).
