Over the next month, wingleted aircraft on SimAirline.net will be indicated with a "W" at the end of the aircraft type. For example, 737-700s will be listed as "737-700W." We're making this change to differentiate between wingleted and non-wingleted aircraft, which often fly different sort of routes and are indicated as such in the timetables. For example, Delta and Northwest's 757 flights across the Atlantic are all wingleted, an important distinction. In addition, some VAs have all-wingleted fleets, but there are still non-wingleted aircraft available on various websites.
Below is a list of all aircraft types that may receive the new designation, depending on the VA. Note that the 737-700ER/900ER will not be included because they always have winglets.
If you wish to have certain older PIREPs clearly indicated as a wingleted or non-wingleted aircraft in your logbook, please just let me know.
