Not everyone was creeped out by Delta and Coke's flirty napkins

THAT WON'T FLY Delta Airlines were branded'creepy for issuing printed slogan during flights

The two brands have reportedly apologized for providing passengers with controversial napkins that encouraged travelers to "write down your [telephone] number and give it to your plane crush".

Delta Airlines and Coca-Cola are sorry for trying to spice up your flight!

A certain Mike (@MJJoe) took to Twitter on Jan. 31 where he shared pictures of the said napkin he received during his flight on Wednesday, Jan. 30.

There were also instructions on the other side, with space to write down a name and number, which said, "Be a little old school, write down your number and give it to your plane crush".

The ill-conceived napkins are the latest ad campaign to stir complaints on social media after marketers were accused of being inappropriate, racist or sexist. "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.

"These napkins are creepy AF", one passenger posted to Twitter.

"We sincerely apologise to anyone we may have offended", the spokesman said. Delta began removing the napkins last month.

But there were those who rallied behind the marketing tactic, praising it for being 'cute'. "Unintentionally creepy" is a complaint voiced by one passenger, and another tweet being widely cited in coverage has a similar theme. I love the humor!'

"We rotate Coke products regularly as part of our brand partnership, but missed the mark with this one", Delta said in a statement, according to USA Today.

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