Baddity means that the photo itself is dirty. For example a dust spot , not because the plane itself is dirty. I think your shot has a dust spot in the top left-hand corner...

Open the image in PS and apply agressive contrast/levels and look at the image, thats a pretty dirty sensor with many small dust spots on it, thats why it was rejected

First of all, it's a rather dirty aircraft indeed. On the other hand, I noticed three dust spots: one above the left main door, halfway between the fuselage and the top of the photo, another underneath the marking 'A320-200' also halfway between the fuselage and the bottom of the photo and finally the last one underneath the right engine, also halfway to the bottom of the photo. As stated above, if you add excessive contrast, you will notice many more dust spots, not visible under normal contrast.
The best thing to do is to clone away the visible spotsand reupload the shot. After that, I think it's best to spend some time cleaning your sensor.

BMI and onto the CMOS perhaps ?

Hope this helps,

Thanks for the advice.
I have 'eclipse' and pec-pads' at home.
I don't know what screens you have but on my crt (19"); no way you can see them.
However; adjusting high-contrast on the screen revealed dust-spots on other photos too (i mean accepted ones).
I'll turn the contrast off again; so we can go to sleep in peace.
