Traveler shocked by Tweet from US Airways

PHOENIX - US Airways on Monday posted a message on Twitter that contained a very graphic image in response to a passenger.

It all started when Twitter user Elle (@ElleRafter) tweeted @USAirways about a flight delay forcing an extended wait on the tarmac.

US Airways responded with: “We welcome feedback, Elle. If your travel is complete, you can detail it for review and follow-up.”

That tweet included a picture that showed a model airplane inappropriately positioned between a woman’s legs.

The photo was online for about one hour before being deleted by US Airways. US Airways later removed the tweet and issued the following apology:

No further details about how the photo made it onto Twitter have been released and US Airways has not yet sent a statement regarding the incident.
