US Airways posted a message on Twitter that contained a graphic image in response to a passenger Monday afternoon.
Twitter user Elle (@ElleRafter) tweeted at @USAirways about a flight delay. US Airways responded with: “We welcome feedback, Elle. If your travel is complete, you can detail it for review and follow-up.”
The tweet included a picture that showed a model airplane inappropriately positioned between a woman’s legs.
23ABC has chosen to black-out parts of that image in the above photo.
US Airways later issued the following apology:
We apologize for an inappropriate image recently shared as a link in one of our responses. We’ve removed the tweet and are investigating.— US Airways (@USAirways) April 14, 2014
No further details about how the photo made it onto Twitter have been released. We have reached out to US Airways for a statement.
