    A language error is easy made. That it can go wrong when painting the company name on a large airliner seems unlikely. Yet this happened with a Boeing 777 from Cathay Pacific, where the 'F' was completely overlooked.

    There was 'CATHAY PACIIC' on the plane in cow letters. A picture of it was shared by Cathay Pacific itself, which can see the humor of it.

    "Oops, this special livery will not last long! She goes back to the shop ", reports the Hong Kong airline on Twitter.

    A setback for the spotters ...

    Nobody gave an "F"? ;)

    The photo indeed was silly but in most cases the names of the company are merely stickered on. It's like a day or two work because otherwise the paint had to be scraped off again and get a new expensive treatment.

    Personally I find it a missed occasion for Cathay. That plane would've become an icon, photographed everywhere, free publicity worth a fortune.
