Travel company Thomas Cook is appealing to hip, young millennials with its new package holidays, Cook’s Club.
With trendy package holidays for ‘a new generation of travellers’ who can ‘find a melting pot of cultures’, its promotion is emblazoned on their planes: ‘I Love Cook’s Club’.
When the plane doors open however, it reveals an embarrassing message.
From the ground, plane doors slide to the right, and the ‘o’ looks as if it turns into a ‘c’, spelling out a rather rude message to those on the runway.
The new Cook’s Club holidays promise holidaymakers a ‘casually cool paradise where everyone is welcome’.
The website states: ‘Cook’s Club offers an alternative kind of atmosphere that welcomes forward-thinking travellers to experience cool, modern design and unique indulgences at an affordable price.’
Images of the blunder were shared on Twitter, Reddit and Facebook, and the plane gaffe was confirmed by Thomas Cook itself.
A Fly Guy’s Cabin Crew Lounge on Facebook, a networking space for cabin crew professionals on Facebook, posted the error on Wednesday lunchtime.
The post received more than 600 likes and was picked up by other outlets.
A Thomas Cook spokesman told The Sun: ‘It goes with out saying it’s an accident, but it is one way to highlight where the emergency exit is.’
Travel company Thomas Cook wasn’t the only flight operator to have a spelling mishap.
Hong Kong based airline Cathay Pacific had to send a new plane back to the shop for a new paint job after its name was spelled wrong on the fuselage.
The Hong Kong-based airline accidentally had ‘Cathay Paciic’ painted on the side of the jet last month.
