"No one gives a F anymore, not even the painters!".

The photos, which reportedly emerged from the Hong Kong Aviation Discussion Board Facebook page, show the Boeing 777-367 missing the letter "F" between the two "I" s in the airline's name.

The Hong Kong-based airline amused netizens when it poked fun at the spelling gaffe on Twitter yesterday.

With the addition of Salesforce Marketing Cloud, Cathay Pacific said it would focus on three key areas: acquiring new customers, personalising all touch-points along the traveller's journey and getting a complete 360-degree view of the members of its Marco Polo loyalty programme.

"Unfortunately, this livery will not last long!"

Cathay Pacific's digital transformation is led by a vision that recognizes and caters to the evolving needs of its customers in order to increase its competitiveness in the airline industry. The company tweeted a picture of the mistake, saying the jet was headed back to the shop.

"The spacing is too on-point for a mishap", an engineer for Haeco, a sister company of the airline, is cited as saying by the BBC.

The error is likely to cost several thousand pounds to correct, the South China Morning Post reported.

Social media users think it is odd that the company didn't notice the blunder. One Twitter user wrote.
