Hello, Everyone!I recently read that WestJet will be the launch customer of the 737-600 with winglets. Will PMDG release an update allowing winglets on the -600 model?Thanks in advance,Eric

Still a while to go before it enters into real life service ..."Flight testing, with a WestJet-provided aircraft, will run from March - May 2006 with FAA and Transport Canada certification expected the following July."Armen at EGLLwww.veryquiet.com
