Hong Kong-based airline Cathay Pacific rolled out a new livery on a Boeing 777-367. But it has to go right back to the shop for a new paint job after a blatant typo. Photos have emerged showing a plane on the ground at Hong Kong International Airport with the words “CATHAY PACIIC.” The photos are real, as Cathay Pacific shared them on social media as well, announcing on its Twitter account: “Oops this special livery won’t last long! She’s going back to the shop!”

The Guardian reports that the plane had been flying overnight from Xiamen in China, arriving in Hong Kong in the early hours of Wednesday morning.
