Why does Air France allow their planes to become so dirty?
Obviously, the longer the time between cleanings, the more work required.

It depends on the Schedule.Out here it a Weekly wash for Each Aircraft.

Yeah some KLM planes look pretty bad! A shiny, clean and tidy KLM aircraft looks just stunning.
Perhaps it's the high utilization rate that there isn't enough time to wash them?
