New seats in 737-800

On the "fakir-flight" this morning OSL-BGO we had a 737-800 with light-blue/grey leather seats. They were alot more comfy than the seats they have put in the 737-600 or in the new 737-700, but the recline was not good and the space between the rows was noth9ing to write home about (seated row 5). There were also audiochannels and a socket for headphones in each seats. Might have been video screens as weel as on the A321, but not sure.

They had also put winglets on this one (or was it a complitely new bird?).

I think it's a re-fit. Asked an FA about it the first time i flew one.
Nice seats compared to the the other bonehard ones they have used.

These are actually Air Europa seats as the 3 737-800s arriving this year are deliveries taken over from Air Europa.

I think that's the brand new one actually. It's not so often used on the OSL-BGO route but it's used some times in peak hours. (Don't know if you noticed but it was very quiet.)
