aeroflot A330 fleet looking tired?

I flew A330 twice the past week or so. Seems these planes are getting rather tired. Scuff marks everywhere, bits and pieces missing in the interior... Does anyone know why aeroflot does not refresh these planes?

They are taking some A350s in early 2020... which might probably lead to some of A330s being phased out.

I do hope you're right but I thought the A350's were for expansion? Even adding streaming entertainment to the A330's might help - those screens sometimes require near-punching..

With new seats etc. Very much looking forward to this

A350 will be flying on existing routes, not new ones.

Just ran across an official statement about phasing out ALL A330s in the next 5 years. To be replaced by A350s.
