I have lived through a fleet transition fron Classic NG-s to NG NG-s (I'm old enough to remember when the -300 was called the NG and the -200 the Classic), in the first couple of months it was quite common to float 200-300 metres on flare due to the highly efficient wings. It took a while to become accustomed to a much more assertive touchdown. I don't know when UT did the transition, but last time I looked they still had quite a few classics around...
