Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola apologize for 'creepy' napkins

ATLANTA — Atlanta-based Delta Air Lines and Coca-Cola are apologizing for a gimmick that seemed to encourage passengers to flirt with each other.

A message on napkins read "because you're on a plane full of interesting people and hey... you never know."

On the other side of the napkin, a place to "write down your number and give it to your plane crush"

Twitter blew up with many saying the napkins were "creepy."

Delta sent a statement to the INSIDER apologizing for the napkins.

"We rotate Coke products regularly as part of our brand partnership, but missed the mark with this one," a Delta spokespeson told INSIDER. "We are sorry for that and began removing the napkins from our aircraft in January."


A Coca-Cola spokesperson also told INSIDER: "We sincerely apologize to anyone we may have offended. We worked with our partners at Delta to begin removing the napkins last month and are replacing them with other designs."
