Cathay Pacific, the flag carrier of Hong Kong, has been roundly mocked after the airline spelled its name wrong on the side of one of its planes.

The airline shared pictures of the plane in question on Twitter, adding: 'Oops this special livery won't last long!

Social media users saw the amusing side, however.

The photos surfaced via the Hong Kong Aviation Discussion Board Facebook group, but it's still not clear just how such an epic mix-up could have happened - and some are a little suspicious. "She's going back to the shop!"

According to the South China Morning Post, it is not clear who is responsible for the mistake, but the expensive error is likely to cost "several thousand dollars to fix".

Cathay Pacific was founded in 1946 and has a network which covers 53 destinations across the Asia-Pacific region, including 23 in mainland China. "We have stencils. Should be a blank gap in between letters if it was a real mistake, I think".

Social media users were quick to joke about the mishap.

The airline's in-flight entertainment manager also got in on the act.
