Cathay Pacific pokes fun at its own spelling gaffe on its aircraft

Cathay Pacific pokes fun at its own spelling gaffe on its aircraft

Cathay Pacific's seen the amusing side after painters spelled its name wrong on one of the fleet's Boeings.

Cathay Pacific became Cathay "Paciic" after an all-important "f" was left off its branding.

Shockingly, the airline was only made aware of the mistake after travellers contacted them after spotting it at Hong Kong International Airport, the BBC reports.

The company's social media team saw the amusing side of the error, tweeting that the plane was being sent back to be repainted. "She's going back to the shop!" the airline said in a tweet.

"No f's were given that day", said another user.

Hong Kong-based newspaper South China Morning Post reported that the error was likely to be expensive, costing several thousand dollars to fix.

Vimal Rai posted: "Great that you can have a laugh about this in public".

A spokesperson for Cathay Pacific told CNN Travel: "We did not intend to make it a big fuss in the first place, but photos went viral within the aviation enthusiastic groups, so we just shared the hilarious moment with everyone".

The plane had been flying overnight from Xiamen in China, where Haeco carries out maintenance for the airline.
