A little over a week ago I was walking to work when one of Delta's
Valsan winglet-enhanced 727s (N510DA) flew over on it's way to a
landing at LAX.  Has Delta reached any conclusions about the benefits
of the winglet upgrade?  Are there any plans to upgrade additional
727s?  I came across a previous message (here in S.A.A., I think) which
indicated that Valsan is now out of business.  If Delta were interested
in pursuing additional upgrades, who might perform the work?
