For F’s Sake! Cathay Pacific spells own name wrong on plane

Hong Kong-based airline has had to send a plane back to the paint shop after the company’s name was spelled incorrectly.

Eagle-eyed travellers spotted the mistake at Hong Kong International Airport and began contacting the airline to inform them the F was missing in ‘Pacific’.

“Oops this special livery won’t last long! She’s going back to the shop!” the company later joked on Twitter.

The airline said it was a genuine mistake, although some in the industry said it was inexplicable.

“The spacing is too on-point for a mishap,” an engineer for Haeco, a sister company of the airline, told the South China Morning Post.

“There should be a blank gap in between letters if it was a real mistake I think.”
