Love can’t be in the air for Delta Air Lines and Coca-Cola.

The two brands have reportedly apologized for the purpose of providing passengers with controversial napkins that encouraged travelers to “write your [phone] number and give it to your plane crash.”

The napkins, which featured Diet Cola logos were printed on one side with the words, “because you’re in a plane full of interesting people and hey… you never know,” and the instructions on the other side of it read, “a little old school, write down your number and give it to your plane crash. You never know…”

There were also spaces to write a phone number and a name.

Who saw the napkins were quick to criticize the brand’s attempt at romance.

“Hey @Delta and @Coca-These napkins are creepy AF. Pretty sure no one appreciated unsolicited phone numbers in the ‘good old days’ and they sure as heck don’t want the number of someone who was already gawking at them on the plane for hours today. Not good to see,” wrote one passenger on Twitter.

“Napkins received from @Delta on Wednesday, the flight seem unintentionally creepy, especially after reading the small print. Swing and a miss, @DietCoke,” said another.

“Remove these napkins, they are creepy,” another Twitter user wrote, in addition to a #TimesUp hashtag.

Both Delta and Coke have since apologized for the napkins, with Delta admit that they “missed the mark on this one.”

“I’m Sorry for that and started to remove the napkins from our aircraft in January,” the airline told an Insider.

Coca-Cola told the outlet they would be replacing the design.

“We sincerely apologize to anyone we may have offended. We have teamed up with our partners at Delta to begin with the removal of the napkins in the last month and they are to be replaced by other designs.”

However, at least a few people on Twitter were not offended by the napkins.
