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

On the plane in question, "Cathay Paciic" was painted instead of the company's name.

An airline has had to send a new plane back to the paint shop after the company's name was spelled incorrectly on it. The company conducts airline operations principally to and from Hong Kong. "She's going back to the shop!" the tweet read.

"The airline and travel industry is being disrupted, and we need to be ready for the customer of the future-the digital natives and those with a digitally-savvy mindset and accompanying expectations", said Paul Loo, chief customer and commercial officer at Cathay Pacific.

The company was able to laugh at itself, though, tweeting: "Oops this special livery won't last long!"

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.

The error is likely to cost several thousand pounds to correct, the South China Morning Post reported.

Social media users nonetheless took the opportunity to poke fun at the airline. One Twitter user wrote.
