Flew this Saturday CPT-JNB on BA's South African subsidiary Comair. Had no idea anyone was flying them again. The latest I read is that there are still software problems (luckily only read so after the flight...)
EDIT: added a question mark to thread title given the info below

Retrofitted -800NG with Split scimitar winglets. Commonly seen across the US also. Biggest way to tell a MAX is the cone shaped APU, LED Lights and curving nacelles engine design.

Any carrier even contemplating playing the MAX card at the moment in light of global bans would be asking to be closed down.

Split scimitar wings are not the definition of a 737 MAX - they have been around for many years. I think that I used to fly these often on Copa (a central american airline with gazzilions of 737's )

Boeing now give the option to retrofit the split scimitar winglet.

See this old Southwest -700 retrofit.

A refit program that delivers some small fuel burn savings but also nicely obscures the arrival into a fleet of some bargain basement priced Max variants... a few years away still for VA, but will certainly make for a lower key introduction of the type when it does happen.
