The person responsible for the social media feeds for US Airways is indeed probably having a horrible day after tweeting out a response that included an incredibly inappropriate photograph.

Here’s a version in which the photo, featuring a naked woman and a toy airplane, has been edited. US Airways’ Twitter feed sent out an unedited version:

US Airways eventually deleted the tweet and apologized:

The company might want to re-think being involved in the whole social media thing:

The airline might also want to consider distributing complimentary eye bleach on subsequent flights:

What’s the head of US Airways doing right now?

Ha!

Something to consider, U.S. Airways:

Hopefully the company takes that under advisement.
