Delta Gave Out 'Creepy' Napkins That Encouraged Passengers to Share Phone Numbers

Delta Coca Cola apologize after 'plane crush' napkins creep out passengers

Passengers from various flights have been showing off the different napkins, with critics claiming they are uncomfortable by the sometimes forward messages.

Delta Air Lines passengers have slammed napkins served with in-flight drinks that encouraged them to give their numbers to others on board. "Because you're on a plane full of interesting people and hey...you never know", read the napkins, which provided a place for names and phone numbers to be exchanged.

"Thanks @CocaCola and @Delta, for encouraging people to TALK to one another, make new friends or do anything besides stare mindlessly at phones", one user wrote on Twitter.

Some reacted on Twitter, noting that the napkins were "creepy". "We are sorry for that and began removing the napkins from our aircraft in January".

While many were fans of the napkins, others branded them "creepy".

The airlines, in partnership with Diet Coke, were distributing the "creepy" cocktail napkins on some flights last month.

Some thought Coca-Cola's marketing campaign was a cute one.

In a statement, Coca-Cola "sincerely" apologized to anyone it may have offended.

"We worked with our partners at Delta to begin removing the napkins last month and are replacing them with other designs", she said. We just came off a flight where we got this one, which brought smiles to our faces (and made hubby want to post it in the lavatory)!

Delta and Coca-Cola, from their end, have since apologized for "missing the mark" and causing anyone offense, as per INSIDER on February 7 (Feb. 6 in the United States).

One user called the napkins a "swing and a miss".

'Someone in procurement over ordered the napkins, ' joked Dr.
