Cathay Pacific spells its name wrong on side of plane

"She's going back to the shop!" the airline said in a tweet.

A popular airline has had to send one if its planes back to the workshop because of a glaring error which has seen it become the target of worldwide ridicule.

Airline operator Cathay Pacific on Wednesday re-posted photos of its plane with a misspelled name, drawing mixed reactions from social media users.

Travellers at Hong Kong International Airport spotted the sign-writer's mistake and contacted the airline immediately.

'No one gives a F anymore, not even the painters!' joked one Twitter user.

"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.

The airline shared an image of a glaring error on an aircraft livery.

But the airline owned the mistake, making light of it on social media.

According to the South China Morning Post, it is not clear who is responsible for the mistake, but the expensive error is likely to cost "several thousand dollars to fix".

"We have stencils. Should be a blank gap in between letters if it was a real mistake I think", they said.

However, some were more sympathetic to the airline.
