Well if I gave you a 747 to paint , Would you like to paint it without having to paint very nice to look at but hard to paint on logos and nice emblems ? Or would you prefer to mask-off the windows and other important "no-paint' bits and just spray everything else white ? Its easier and cheaper to paint an aircraft one colour. White is common because its a common paint.
