Delta Air Lines Apologizes For 'Creepy' Diet Coke Napkins

Delta Air Lines and Coca Cola have apologized for creepy in-flight napkins that featured a spot for passengers to write their phone number to pass onto their "plane crush."

The airlines said in a statement that it was already in the process of removing the napkins from flights.

Delta Air Lines said in the statement, “We rotate Coke products regularly as part of our brand partnership, but missed the mark with this one. We are sorry for that and began removing the napkins from our aircraft in January.”

Coca Cola echoed the sentiments with its own statement:

"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."

This design included the written suggestion, " Because you're on a plane with interesting people and hey … you never know" featured on one side. The backside featured a spot for one to write a name and phone number.

The small print read, “Be a little old school. Write down your number and give it to your plane crush. You never know …” 

The napkins will be replaced by "standard Diet Coke branded napkins found regularly on Delta flights."
