11 FEB 2019: Delta Airlines and Coca-Cola partnered on a very short lived and ill-advised promotion. They provided cocktail napkins to help passengers get picked up. The copy on the paper napkin leaves space for people to write their name and number so they can pass it to another passenger.

The front of the napkin says, "because you're on a plane of full of interesting people and hey ... you never know."

The back of the napkins says, "be a little old school. Write down your number & give it to your plane crush. You never know..."

The response from the public has been “not interested.”

People on social media have described the campaign as creepy and offensive.

"We sincerely apologize to anyone we may have offended," The Coca-Cola Company said Thursday, adding that they started removing the napkins and are replacing them with other designs.

Delta said they “missed the mark with this one," adding "we are sorry for that."
