Would you like to fly this plane?

I’ve seen some dirty planes, but never anything this bad from a US airline. What galaxy has this plane been flying around in?

    Looks like a couple of heat shield tiles fell off during re-entry.

    Wow, that's really bad...is it possible that plane had been stored in the desert and called back into service on relatively short notice, and they just hadn't had a chance to spruce it up?

    Alternately, is this a sign that UA has started subcontracting exterior cleaning to Air France? :-)

    It goes to show that United needs to pay a bit of TLC, Paint, and repairs to the whole fleet.

    First impressions alas do count...

    Yeah - I don't know about that plane. I am by no means a nervy flier, but looking at how long it has gone between cosmetic maintenance - how confident am I that the important stuff has been properly done? I'm just really saddened that my former favorite airline has come to this.

    Worse than the aesthetics, surely this increases drag & cuts measurably into fuel efficiency.

    I would fly the dirtiest UA jet before setting foot in a Hewa Bora jet.
