Out of the last four airplanes I've flown on, three have had their passenger cabin windows absolutely trashed. When the windows were in direct sunlight, the scratches were so bad the window was nearly useless. And the damage was obvious even when the window was in shadow. The scratches all seemed to have a preferred diagonal orientation. As I recall, the carrier was either American or Trans World. Since two of these craft were pretty new, it appears to me that someone has gotten extremely careless with their washing procedures/equipment/personnel. It looks as though lots of damage was done, maye in a relatively short time.
