Is there any airlines you know of that notoriously operate planes that look to be in bad condition. For example, here is a Millon Air 707 that looks in really bad condition. I mean granted it is crashed, but look at the rear section.

Tower Air was notorious for their exposed wires and their artful integration of duct tapes with their interior. Their planes didn't look good from outside, either.

Delta B767s tail section near the APU. It's probably just a lack of paint though.


SAA B747 SP, Luxavia B747 SP

Although i have never flown with them, lots of people i know say that Garuda's aircraft are old, dirty and falling apart.

The outsides of Air France planes always look beat up and dirty, mostly on the older ones though.

A lot of times that is really true with Air France. Everything is fine in the interior but the outside looks beat up quite often or just dirty. Is it cause they don't wash their planes?

Garuda's planes are just fine. I flew one of their 737s and DC-10s last summer on domestic Indonesia flights. Very clean, nice interior, professional service, a good meal and on time.

While I was at YYZ, the aircraft I was taking was parked next to a Lufthansa 744. There were scratches (including a couple of huge ones that were several feet long) all over. Such a shame for a new airplane.

The cleanest airplanes in the world are probably Canada 3000's. Take a look through the A.net database. Despite having an all-white colour scheme, the aircraft always look immaculate.
