US Airways Apologizes For Tweeting Pornographic Image To Disgruntled Customer
CBSLA.com) ^ | April 14, 2014 1:48 PM

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — US Airways apologized Monday after a pornographic image was posted on the company’s Twitter feed.

The company often responds directly to disgruntled passengers, but was seemingly unaware that one of its replies included a lewd photograph.

“@thatkatzkat We don’t like to hear this, Alex. Please provide feedback to our Customer Relations team here,” read the tweet, which also included a link to a photo of a woman with a model airplane protruding out of a body cavity.

The airline later removed the tweet and apologized for the incident.

What kind of idiots do they have working in customer relations?

Carbon capturing all the Carbon life forms in the UN building by injecting them into the SPR salt domes works for me.

i think that image epitomizes the flying experience most people have today.

and if one did have a plane up one’s ass, i would think this would be a case to call customer service.

Exactly the kind of idiots they pay for in customer service. Typically low pay and get burned out at the constant stress of being yelled at all day.

Well, it appears that the Boeing 777’s have been having a bad time these last few months.

I must have read it wrong, but it looked to me like the angry passenger tweeted a photo response to the airline, and it went viral.

I don’t know why they should have to apologize???

Technically it is not a cavity, but an orifice.
