Winglets take flight
American Airlines operated the first flight with a 767-300ER equipped with Aviation Partners Boeing Blended Winglets between Dallas/Fort Worth and London Heathrow last month. According to APB, the efficiency gains to be provided by the winglets could save 500,000 gal. of fuel per aircraft annually, which equates to a savings of 29 million gal. and 277,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions per year for AA's fleet of 58 767-300ERs.
