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

Cathay Pacific sent a plane back to the painters today after spotting a typo in its logo adorning the side of the jet.

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

The aircraft was seen by passengers at Hong Kong International Airport who alerted the airline.

An engineer from Haeco, a sister company of the airline, told the South China Morning Post "The spacing is too on point for a mishap".

With the addition of Salesforce Marketing Cloud, Cathay Pacific said it would focus on three key areas: acquiring new customers, personalising all touch-points along the traveller's journey and getting a complete 360-degree view of the members of its Marco Polo loyalty programme.

Cathay responded on tongue-in-cheek on twitter and said it's heading back to the paint shop.

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!"

A spokesperson for Cathay Pacific told CNN Travel: "We did not intend to make it a big fuss in the first place, but photos went viral within the aviation enthusiastic groups, so we just shared the hilarious moment with everyone".

Either way, it made for some fun on social media.
