    Not 100% sure about terminology here, but I thought the Airbus narrow-bodies used wingtip fences while the Boeing 737s used blended wingtips. And then there are raked wingtips on some bigger Boeings.

    That said, yes, the wingtip thingie looks like what the narrow-body Boeings have, but Airbus announced those a while ago for their aircraft:
