Take a look at this photos, what do you think? Of course there are other aircrafts out there that looks terrible, but I think that its bad marketing to fly around with aircrafts like that one on the photos.

To pull an aircraft off the kine just to touch-up the paint will probably cost more money than the airline may lose because some passenger thinks the plane looks unkempt.
That being said, maintenance of the exterior finish of an aircraft is important to the overall maintenance of the aircraft. I'd imagine that USAirways is keeping tabs on their fleet's appearance and scheduling the individual aircraft for the appropiate maintenance when time, facilities and manpower are available.
By the way, the plural of aircraft is ........ aircraft, not aircrafts.
