If you’ve ever been refused boarding to a flight because your name was spelled wrong on the ticket, you might take comfort from this fairly glaring error on the side of a Cathay Pacific plane. Or should that be “Cathay Paciic”?

On Wednesday morning, photos emerged of a plane for the Hong Kong carrier, with its distinctive green livery missing an “F”.

I bet CX management found no f'in humour in the situation {boxed}
A million great ideas...

I'd grade that livery an F.

And it's on the starboard side, so no chance of just scrubbing two letters and replacing with three...

In fairness to CX, they've shared it on their own social media!

There's the right way, the wrong way and the railway.

Looking at other examples, the gap between the 'Cathay' and the 'Pacific' appears too large by about the width of the 'F' so I suspect the'IC' was being masked while the 'PACI' was being moved further back along the fuselage to accommodate the 'F'
A million great ideas...

Well I’m on CX later today so I’ll see if I get one with or without an F. :))
Hire Engineers to drive the vision and execute a plan. Hire MBAs to shuffle the papers and work in sales. Hire Accountants to manage your staff working a viable livable wage, and never have either an Accountant or an MBA run your company. - Steve Jobs

Hopefully your ticket isn't in F!
