Actually:

I was under the impression that it was both! The first thing my eye caught were the lack on window dirt streaks...the second was that black stripe on the upper front of the vertical stabilizer  Smile

The photographer was ridiculing AF's reputation for having dirty planes. In this case, what's so "unusual" is that the aircraft is clean. Spankin clean, actually.
Its better to be on the ground wishing you were in the air than be in the air wishing you were on the ground. Fly safe!
