Another said: "In the age of Trump, just like the rest of us, Cathay Pacific literally has no Fs left to give".

And to prove that it's a good sport, if not necessarily a good speller, Cathay Pacific shared the photos on social media, announcing on its Twitter account: "Oops this special livery won't last long!"

Hong Kong-based airline Cathay Pacific has, but instead of spelling its name wrong on a simple piece of paper, this misspelling was painted on the side of a brand new multimillion-dollar airplane. "She's going back to the shop!" the company joked on Twitter.

"I guess the "F" isn't working on someone's keyboard..." one person wrote, while another said, "Leave it as-is and put a red squiggle underneath".

Reaction on social media varied, with some mocking the error.
