The sharklets are the winglets you can see at the end of the wings, it's just called sharklet because Airbus wanted to dissociate them from boeing's.
It is supposed to reduce fuel burn by 3%.
The thing you're talking about is usually on test planes, but I have no idea what is it for, anyone??

The orange thing on the tail is some kind of pressure sensor used on test flights.

Mexican airline Interjet orders 40 new Airbus planes

(Reuters) - Mexican airline Interjet said on Monday it placed an order for 40 A320 Airbus (EAD.PA) aircraft in its latest move to boost operations in a market led by carrier Aeromexico (AEROMEX.MX).

"Last Friday, we inked a contract to purchase 40 Airbus A320s, its new model," Interjet Chairman Miguel Aleman Velasco said during a business summit in the central industrial state of Queretaro.

Interjet, which launched operations in 2005 amid a surge of low-cost airlines in Mexico, operates 34 A320 in its fleet.
