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.
