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

And although the airlines believes it was down to a mistake, an engineer for Haeco - Cathay Pacific's sister company - isn't convinced.

The images, which were first circulated among a group of Hong Kong aviation enthusiasts, show one of the airline's new planes on the ground at Hong Kong's airport with the words "Cathay Paciic" written on the side.

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

Some social media users found the error amusing while others saw it as a sign of declining standards across the airline industry. "She's going back to the shop!" the company joked on Twitter on Wednesday and called it a genuine mistake, although some in the industry said it was inexplicable.

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

'The spacing is too on-point for a mishap, ' he told the Post. "Air travel needs to lighten up".

The mistake is likely to cost several thousand dollars to fix, according to the South China Morning Post.

Cathay Pacific was founded in 1946 and has a network which covers 53 destinations across the Asia-Pacific region, including 23 in mainland China.
