If you think that is bad you should check out VH-OJK, the red tail is fading badly-I have some pictures taken a couple of weeks ago but they are unlikely to be accepted here.

Jarek,

Dear god in heaven! I take back my entire post, compared to that - Qantas has all it's planes dripping with fresh paint.

Well, here are more pictures of aircrafts praying for a new paint job; Aerolineas Internacionales is the worst airline in Mexico and their planes are like this 1 or 2 months after they were repainted.

I am just wandering. To me looks like the paint (on AF 737-500) goes off because it's not well painted or very old. Doesn't look like mechanical damage.
Am I right?

Air France is notorious for letting that happen! They should really take a look at their aircraft!

I think when you put any kind of white paint on an airplane it tends to show dirt more and probably doesnt last as long either...look at white cars...they are in car washes everywhere

Sometimes it has to do with faulty/cheap materials. Like here:

Just goes to show... You're asking for trouble from A.net spotters/photogs if you choose a mostly-white livery!

I've always seen Delta as the dirtiest visitor here at KCLE. Continental seems to do a good job of keeping their planes clean. Southwest would be the second worst; and I've seen a few less-than-shiny AA planes.

I'll re-mention the AA planes I've seen (possibly TWA converts?) that look like they've just been attacked with an orbital sander. They have swirl marks all over. They're shiny...but it looks like shit.

You're right... They are dirty.

I always thought QF was prided on having clean, shining planes.

What happened?

Perhaps because Air France aren't re-painting their aircraft and changing logos every six months they have managed to remain profitable over the last 18 months..... and the onboard service is quite good too...

For dirty aircraft, look no further than the KLMuk F100's and the Ryanair 732's... The F100's are notorious for exhaust problems, and Ryanair dont care, just like Air France....
