Cathay Pacific has become a huge meme around the globe after they spelt their name wrong on their very own Boeing 777-367. Someone’s getting the flick – I blame the intern.
Understandably, social media has had a field day about Cathay Pacific‘s major blunder, with many admiring the airline’s brash re-branding of giving no F’s.
The Hong Kong-based airline has been rather light-hearted about the whole ordeal, tweeting multiple pictures of the mistake alongside the caption, “Oops this special livery won’t last long! She’s going back to the shop!”
Oops this special livery won’t last long! She’s going back to the shop!

Despite the airline being super blazé about the whole, many have been left wondering how a company’s NAME can be spelt wrong on their OWN PLANE.
However, with every hurdle comes a silver lining. Without further ado, I would like to introduce to you the new, and very legitimate, airline: Cathay Paciic. Cathay Paciic certifiably gives zero fucks, will fly you to wherever it decides, play Darude‘s “Sandstorm” on repeat and throw Sakatas at your head during mealtime. A stunning journey ahead.

In response to Cathay Pacific‘s statement that the plane is going back to the shop, our new favourite meme Cathay Paciic has sought to reassure customers that they are, in fact, still in business. “Lies! We will reman in business,” they tweeted to their loyal 52 customers.
Two households, both alike in dignity.
Anyway, the internet is an amazing place, as per usual. And that intern has probably been fired.
