US Airways accidentally tweets pornographic image to customer

US Airways found itself in a spot of bother after it tweeted a sexually graphic picture to one of its customers.

The image was tweeted on Monday night in response to a customer's complaint and, while we can't show the picture here because it's so obscene, we can tell you that it depicts a naked woman with a toy plane in an intimate place.

The customer had originally complained about her delayed flight North Carolina to Oregon. US Airways then replied with the message: "We welcome feedback, Elle. If your travel is complete, you can detail here for review and follow up."

While the message itself was fine, they also attached the pornographic image, which clearly was not. The airline then took an hour to take down the message, by which time it had already been retweeted many times.

Even though the airline then apologised and said it was looking into the error, the damage had been done and, as per usual the internet set about poking fun at the airline and its rude tweet. Take a look at our favourite funny tweets below.

Of course, another airline made the headlines yesterday after a 14-year-old girl from Holland tweeted a faux bomb threat.

American Airlines received the tweet yesterday and responded that they had forwarded on her details to the FBI, the girl was later arrested.

This makes the final tweet about the US Airways debacle even funnier.
