JetBlue Airways will begin retrofitting its existing Airbus A320 fleet with sharklet wing tip devices by March, but will only retrofit five of them this year. It does not expect to complete the retrofit with the fuel-saving technology on all 127 of its current A320s until 2016 or 2017…..

It will take about two weeks to retrofit each aircraft, he noted, so the carrier has to take into account the tradeoff between the revenue lost from taking the aircraft out of service and the efficiencies gained from lower fuel burn after the installation……

JetBlue expects fuel savings of as much as 3% from installing the sharklets, which also will be fitted on all new deliveries of A320 and A321 aircraft, seven of which are arriving this year. Powers reiterated the airline’s 2011 estimate that each retrofit will pay for itself in about two years.

Dave Barger Twitter account had this picture of the first one starting today:
