Question Filthy KLMuk Fokkers?!?

Whilst at MAN today I saw 2 KLMuk Fokker 100's come and go on the AMS run, and both of them had absolutely filthy tails... not just dirty but black with the filth! Surely part of the advertising and marketing for the airline is the public actually seeing the aircraft, and seeing it covered in c**p isn't going to do their image much good, surely? I suppose the engines are not ideally placed for this on the Fokker (though I am by no means a Fokker expert ) but you dont see this on Portugalia/Air France/Other Fokker operators, so I was wondering why KLMuk's planes are so dirty!

I made the same mistake once - geniuinely thinking that there may be some technical problem, I told a F100 pilot that his bottom was dirty one side but not the other, he's never let me forget it. ,
