Hong Kong-based airline Cathay Pacific has been mocked on social media after the carrier misspelt its own name on the livery of the Boeing 777-367.

But Cathay Pacific saw the amusing side.

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

Cathay Pacific wrote: "Oops this special livery won't last long!"

The airline confirmed the error on its Twitter account, and poked a bit of fun at itself in the process.

It's unclear how the mistake was made and who is responsible, but the South China Morning Post reports that it will likely cost the airline several thousand dollars to fix.

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

A third commented: "Great that you can have a laugh about this in public". "We have stencils. Should be a blank gap in-between letters if it was a real mistake, I think", the engineer said.
