Cathay Pacific displayed a sense of humor about the mishap, posting that the "special livery won't last long", as the plane is headed "back to the shop!"
Cathay Pacific recently gave one of its planes a brand new paint job, somehow making a slight spelling error in the process.
Travellers at Hong Kong International Airport spotted the sign-writer's mistake and contacted the airline immediately.
"Oops ... She's going back to the shop!" a company social media staffer joked on Twitter.
Social media users had a bit of a field day with the error.
"If they can get this obviously wrong makes you wonder about the more important engineering on the plane!" said another.
The airline said it was a genuine mistake, although some in the industry said it was inexplicable.
"Should be a blank gap in between letters if it was a real mistake, I think". "Air travel needs to lighten up".
Cathay Pacific and Boeing jointly announced that the historic first B777-200, line number WA001 and registered B-HNL, will fly from Hong Kong to Tucson September 18 to join 350 historic aircraft on permanent display.
