This might seem an odd question, but I guess the cleaner an aircraft
is externally, the faster it flies?

How often are airliners cleaned externally? I recently saw a BWIA
L1011 at Manchester (UK) that was absolutely filthy. It certainly
couldn't have inspired any confidence in the passengers :-)

Thanks
