United has not flown their first passenger plane outfitted with split scimitar winglets today in regular operations. The airline confirmed that the airplane was was recently taken in to have the winglets removed following flight testing. Regular blended winglets were then re-installed. The split scimitar versions are expected to be installed into the fleet in February of 2014, following full FAA certification.
