These are the biggest reasons airline travelers are complaining to the Department of Transportation this year!
Delta Air Lines and Coca Cola have apologized for creepy in-flight napkins that featured on their phone number to pass onto their "plane crush."
The airlines said in a statement that it was already in the process of removing the offending Diet Coke napkins from flights even before a social media outcry from passengers.
"We rotate Coke products regularly as part of our brand partnership, but missed the mark with this one," Delta Air Lines said in the statement to USA TODAY. "We are sorry for that and started removing the napkins from our aircraft in January."
Coca Cola echoed the sentiments with its own statement:
"We sincerely apologize to anyone we may have offended. We work with our partners at Delta to start the napkins last month and are replacing them with other designs.

This design was a flop, with the written suggestion, "Because you're on a plane with interesting people and hey … you never know" featured on one side. The backside featured a name for a name and phone number.
The small print featured the prodding, "Be a little old school. Write down your number and give it to your plane crush. You never know… ”
One Twitter user featured the display in a series of photos saying," These napkins are creepy AF. Pretty sure no one appreciated unsolicited phone numbers in the good old days and they sure look like heck don " t want the number of someone who has been registered on a plane for hours today. ”
The napkins will be replaced by "standard diet Coke branded napkins found regularly on Delta flights," according to to the airlines
