very true..that brings up an interesting question..why are AF's aircrafts most of the time very dirty? is their maintenance crew just poor or what?

I find this ironic, because don't they clean their streets like every day over there??

Dirtiest I was ever on was an old TW DH7 that was filthy on the outside, and lacked sufficient A/C once you got in it. And yes, it was 90ºF outside...

Just to confirm,these are great a/c.I don't know why,but there seems to be a calming influence on these.The lighting is cool,aircon actually works..just great aircraft with an airline that's trying soooo hard!!  Smile  Smile
