    No. It's the Boeing 747 with a flip-up wingtip variant.

    Yup. That is not a 747 engine mount as well. The engine pylons of the 747 are under the wing. The wing/engine configuration looks more like a 737-800. Not sure why I thought it was an Airbus. Totally different winglets.

    they have smaller sharper edged winglets.
    im pretty sure its a 738, the engine cowling fin is another sign.

    You guys are probably right. The trip started in Sydney with the 747 but that shot might be taken after I switched the flight to a smaller plane in Kuala Lumpur many hours later.
