'No one gives a F anymore, not even the painters!' joked one Twitter user.

According to pictures circulating online, the letter "f" was missing from the words "Cathay Pacific", resulting in the final spelling being "Cathay Paciic".

And to prove that it's a good sport, if not necessarily a good speller, Cathay Pacific shared the photos on social media, announcing on its Twitter account: "Oops this special livery won't last long! She's going back to the shop!" it read.

Social media users had a bit of a field day with the error.

However, some were more sympathetic to the airline.

During the interview, Smart provided disturbing, never-before-heard details about Barzee and her "reading materials" in prison. Part of Barzee's parole condition states she can not have any contact with Smart or any of Smart's family members.

And he indicated that he could return to the Premier League one day, saying: "You always want to come back and play in your home league and a part of you will always miss home".

Border Patrol Agent Accused Of Killing Four Women
It was originally believed that Ortiz had murdered three women and one man, but it turned that was actually a transgender woman. Those two individuals were only identified in the affidavit as "Jane Doe" and "John Doe", but both had been shot to death.

An engineer at Haeco, the airline's sister company, was at a loss for an explanation.

"If they can get this obviously wrong makes you wonder about the more important engineering on the plane!" said another.

Hong Kong-based newspaper South China Morning Post reported that the error was likely to be expensive, costing several thousand dollars to fix. "We have stencils. Should be a blank gap in-between letters if it was a real mistake, I think", the engineer said.

At least that's the mantra that Cathay Pacific seems to live by.
