Today I saw an Alitalia 742, and damn did it look old! I was just wondering, since Ive heard lots of bad things about AZ if that was just maintenance and cleanliness lack, or if they really are so old?

I am afraid to disappoint you but Alitalia has one of the highest level of safety thanks to their very good maintenance.
That 747 is pretty old, having being delivered between 1980 and 1985 but it will be withdrawn within 2 years with the arrival of the first B777s.
