Cathay Pacific sends plane 'back to the shop' after embarrassing misspelling

No Fs given Cathay shared the typo on Twitter

"No one gives a F anymore, not even the painters!".

Hong Kong flag carrier Cathay Pacific faced an embarrassing moment when one of its aircrafts was painted with the incorrect spelling of the company's name.

Cathay Pacific's digital transformation is led by a vision that recognizes and caters to the evolving needs of its customers in order to increase its competitiveness in the airline industry.

Qantas customers will have more options to fly across south-east Asia under a new agreement with Hong Kong airline Cathay Pacific.

Cathay Pacific responded quickly, making light of the situation.

Tropical Storm Kirk forms in Eastern Atlantic Ocean
Kirk could potentially impact the USVI in some form during the upcoming weekend, according to the storm's projected path. The Weather Authority is tracking four tropical disturbances or depression (s) brewing in the Atlantic Ocean.

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! She's going back to the shop!" the tweet read.

An engineer for Haeco, the sister company of Cathay Pacific expressed disbelief at the incident.

The photos surfaced via the Hong Kong Aviation Discussion Board Facebook group, but it's still not clear just how such an epic mix-up could have happened - and some are a little suspicious.

Either way, it made for some fun on social media. "The idea is that Twitter is having a blast with it, with users suggesting all kinds of ways of fixing the typo, from sticking "^F" underneath the writing, to embracing the typo with a new company motto.
