‘No-one Gives a F’: Cathay Pacific Misspells Own Name on 777

by John Harper

This is embarrassing. Actually, quite embarrassing. Cathay Pacific just misspelled its own name, and not on some piece of in-flight literature. This typo is plastered on the side of a Boeing 777: “Cathay Paciic”.

It’s not clear how or why this happened. Cathay fessed up to the error on its own Twitter account.

An engineer interviewed by The South China Morning Post was as puzzled as anyone by the bizzare omission, and even suggested that some foul play or prankster might be at work:

“The spacing is too on-point for a mishap. We have stencils. Should be a blank gap in between letters if it was a real mistake I think.”

Let’s all hope the maintenance staff at Cathay Pacific aren’t leaving gaps in other departments.
