If you mess up a paint job doing some DIY, for example, you can usually rectify the problem fairly easily.

When you’ve painted it on the side of a huge plane, however, it gets a bit harder to cover up.

Unfortunately, that’s what one unlucky painter did down the side of a Thomas Cock Cook plane.

While they didn’t mess up the spelling exactly, the placement of the text meant that, when the plane doors are open, the message changes rather drastically.

It might’ve been ok if they hadn’t decided to launch a new club, aimed at younger travellers, called the ‘I Heart Cook’s Club’.

Then again, it could be worse for the airline. Some of us have to live with such a spelling everyday.

The travel company admitted the mistake was genuine after people started sharing pictures of the new phrase. However, they also managed to see the funny side.

They said, as per Metro:

It goes without saying it’s an accident, but it is one way to highlight where the emergency exit is.

At least they didn’t misspell their own name, like another airline, Cathay Pacific, did – spelling their name Cathay Paciic instead.

Earlier this year, Thomas Cook announced they were going to stop selling tickets to attractions in Florida and Tenerife which keep killer whales in captivity.

One of the biggest names to be affected by this move is SeaWorld – a marine mammal park which continues to divide opinion with its attractions and animals.

The decision, which is also affect Loro Parque in Tenerife, has been put in place because of concerns for animal welfare. It’s set to come into action from next summer.

It is expected to lose Thomas Cook hundreds of thousands of pounds each year, reports Huffington Post.

Thomas Cook’s Peter Frankhauser said:

This was not a decision we took lightly. We always said we would continue to review our policy, conscious that the more we got into this area, the more we would learn, and conscious also of changing customer sentiment.

We have actively engaged with a range of animal welfare specialists in the last 18 months, and taken account of the scientific evident they’ve provided.

We’ve also taken feedback from our customers, more than 90 per cent of whom told us it was important their holiday company takes animal welfare seriously.

That has led us to the decision we have taken today.

Thomas Cook’s decision to stop selling tickets to attractions which keep killer whales in captivity will mean they’re also ending their relationships with a further 29 destinations die to animal welfare concerns.
