Mmmm, actually "Mir" is the Russian for "Peace", not "Dirt".
Keep in mind that the station was a home to several international crews,
including American, and we all know what kind of a mess Americans leave
behind themselves, don't we? (say in the cinemas, airplanes etc) :-)

On the contrast, the planes of the Russian Aeroflot are usually spotless
clean and in my opinion might overshadow even the British Airways.

I've never yet flown Swissair, tho...
