Creepy or a little cute? 

Recent research has shown that it is quite common to meet the love of your life on a plane and it seems Delta Airlines and Coca Cola are trying to cash in on the fact. 

One customer tweeted out a photo of a new collaboration, where passengers are given a branded napkin while on all Delta flights. 

But not everyone thinks it’s ‘cute’ or ‘old school’ – instead complaining it is predatory and intrusive. 

The napkin reads, “because you’re on a plane full of interesting people and hey… you never know.”


You turn the napkin over and there is space for you to write your name and phone number to give your prospective ‘plane crush’. 

A final disclaimer says “be a little old school. write down your number and give it to your plane crush. you never know”.

We’re a little divided on this one. 

The customer complained that people may not enjoy being given unsolicited phone numbers, especially from someone who has just been “gawking at them on a play for hours”. 

Delta made the decision to pull the napkin for the time being, but because we’re in the 21st century they are now receiving backlash for stopping the “cute” promotion. 

“We rotate Coke products regularly as part of our brand partnership, but missed the mark with this one,” Delta said in a statement to The Washington Post.


“We are sorry for that and began removing the napkins from our aircraft in January.”

Just can’t win…
