Whats the reason of Pain Peeling off from this Aircraft in this manner,Also the Zinc Chromate primer is not Visable.
Could it be faulty Paint application.

Several things will cause that.....

Contaminants on the surface when the paint was applied...
The primer was too dry or not scuffed before the paint was applied...
The paint was not mixed correctly and was too 'hot'...

The garage door wasn't fully open when the pilot was parking it.

All the big planes where rubbing its head.

Airplane acne?

Going bald?

Does Becks have a new haircut?

Cost cutting?

I am sure that there are a lot more logical explanations out there.

Bad paint job, done on the cheap. I´ve seen planes that were not even primed before applying the top coats. Looks fine for a few months (until the bill is paid) and then the paint will start to peel off.

While I'm not an expert at aircraft painting, all I can say is look at the airline. Air France is not known for having cosmetically friendly looking exteriors.

Zinc chromate contains heavy metals and has not been used in aviation in many years. What is used now is called FR Primer; FR meaning fluid resistant. Another possible cause of the paint peeling, especially at the nose of an airplane is the use of too much accelerator, which is used to get the paint to dry quicker.
Also, if you try to paint an airplane in a chilly environment (roughly below 15 C or 59 F), the paint will not cure, but I don't think that that is the problem with this airplane.
