U.S. Airways Sends Porn Tweet Apology, Then Apologizes

U.S. Airways Tweet

While American Airlines is busy hunting down 14-year-old white girl terrorists, U.S. Airways is sending out pornographic tweets to disgruntled passengers.

When a pissed off passenger took to Twitter to air her grievances about sitting on the tarmac for an hour, U.S. Airways responded with a nice little note… and a picture of some girl getting nosedived by a 777 replica. Oops. Full version available here.

After U.S. Airways realized they had posted a picture of a vagina swallowing a plane, they went into full damage control and deleted the Tweet. Unfortunately for them, it took a full hour for them to realize their pornographic error and by that time it had been retweeted hundreds, if not billions, of times.

US Aiways Apology

U.S Airways claims another user had sent the naked image to the company’s Twitter account and they were trying to flag the image as inappropriate but instead mistakenly included it in a message to a complaining customer. Right…

Meanwhile, now that American Airlines is dealing with teenage terrorist threats and U.S Airways is emerged in some kind of porn scandal, Southwest Airlines has seized the moment and decided to wow it’s passengers with a flight attendant turned comedian. Passengers on the short flight to Salt Lake City, Utah, were treated to a one-woman safety features/stand-up show that ended in raucous applause and cheers. The viral video had more than 630,000 hits by early Tuesday morning.

Probably Not a Good Idea to Tweet a Terrorist Threat to an Airline…

American Airlines Dutch Tweet

A 14-year-old Twitter obsessed tween is learning the hard way that threatening a major airline on social media may not be the best idea.

On Sunday morning, 14-year-old “Sarah” from the Netherlands addressed a tweet to the US-based airline implying she was an al Qaeda operative planning an attack.

Well that sounds pretty legit…. but American Airlines wasn’t taking any chances and wrote back:

At this point Sarah freaked out and quickly backtracked, saying she was simply a 14-year-old white girl who made the whole thing up.

“I’m just a fangirl pls I don’t have evil thoughts and plus I’m a white girl,” she tweeted.

Well, if she’s a white girl she can’t possibly be a terrorist! Case closed. But just to play it safe, Sarah let everyone know that she blocked the FBI from her Twitter account. That should do the trick!

Meanwhile, over at the FBI headquarters….

FBI Agent 1: “Did you complete surveillance on that airline bomb threat?”

FBI Agent 2: “I tried sir, but she blocked us on Twitter! There’s nothing we can do.”

FBI Agent 1: “Damn. We’ll have to add her on Facebook now…”

I guess the Facebook strategy worked because on Monday the Dutch teen was arrested in Rotterdam and questioned by the police.

“We’re not in a state that we can communicate any state of charges at this point,” a Dutch police spokesperson said. “We just thought it was necessary to bring this out mostly because of the fact that it caused a great deal of interest on the Internet.”

But in the end it was all worth it because Sarah achieved what other 14-year-old girls only dream of: thousands of Twitter followers!

“Omg I got over 10k rts for that tweet omg” Sarah tweeted.

“Over 20k followers yay”

Yay! Her criminal record (and underwear) may be permanently stained, but she’ll always have her Twitter followers – until it Twitter suspends her account… which they already did.
