Huge spelling mistake on Cathay Pacific plane

Cathay Pacific's livery boo-boo

For Hong Kong-based airline Cathay Pacific, it was between the "i" s - on the livery of its Boeing 777-367.

The award-winning, globally recognised airline accidentally let one of its new jets fly the skies with the name "Cathay Paciic" painted on its side.

In response, many social media users praised the company's public relations team for their approach.

The image had been posted on the Hong Kong Aviation Discussion Board, a Facebook group for plane spotters.

The airline, which may have to pony up a few thousand dollars to fix the error, tried to have a sense of humor about it all, posting pictures of the plane on Twitter and noting, "Oops this special livery won't last long!"

The airline said it was a genuine mistake, although some in the industry said it was inexplicable. "She's going back to the shop!" the company joked on Twitter.

While the airline insisted the spelling error was a mistake, some had their doubts.

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

Social media users were quick to joke about the mishap.

"No f's were given that day", quipped Aghiad Haloul, while Frank L asked if "CATHAY PACFFC" was on the other side of the fuselage.
