Hopefully it's shopped.  Aside from wasting money and passing the cost along, it's poor PR for a company that wants the public's trust when it comes to defying gravity through precision engineering and attention to detail.

Apparently the painter did not give a flying F

Fun fact: brid is the original word. It became bird sometime after they named the UK port village, Bridport.

Just as flutter-bys became known as butter-flies with no connection to butter at all. Also the way sideburns are derived from the General Burnside's name. A burn is a stream in Scottish, so General Burnside's name made perfect sense, while Sideburns is meaningless. We don't actually burn them into your sides, do we?

I would think they are delivered painted and its not the airlines fault...

The other fkcking problem is they obviously can't spell Kathy right either.

A simple misunderstanding; Delta just told them to get the F out of the Pacific...

Just following orders.  His boss yelled "I want that plane painted now! Get the F out"

I bet the painter used to be one of those tattoo artists who gives you random Chinese letters while telling you it means "luck" or whatever.

And airplane paint is bloody expensive. And to do it correctly they'll need to strip the existing paint and redo, not just paint over it (or suffer the extra weight penalty forever more).

I was hoping it would be either Bangkok Airways or Sun Country.

Aer Lingus is already hilarious to me without any error.

friend of mine worked for McDonnell Douglas back in the 70's.  They built a customized plane for a Saudi Prince.  The sign guys putting the graphics on missed a squiggle.  No one noticed until it landed.  It was told to turn around and leave.  so went to Switzerland and was fixed.  My friend was the graphics manager...he got blamed.

That penalty comes with a -1 to iniative roll and affects saving throws involving dexterity. So...pretty serious.
