US Airways apologized for an extremely graphic photo that it shared earlier today, depicting a naked woman in a sexual position with a toy plane.
On Monday afternoon, the airline tweeted the photo to a customer who was complaining about their service. US Airways said in the tweet, “We welcome feedback, Elle. If your travel is complete, you can detail here for review and follow up.”
WARNING: THE IMAGE BELOW IS A GRAPHIC, EDITED VERSION OF THE TWEET.
It took almost a full hour before the company removed the tweet, and it has already made its rounds on the Internet.
A representative of US Airways told The Huffington Post that they were looking into the incident as of 3:25 p.m.
The company sent out a follow-up tweet after the original NSFW image garnered more than 500 retweets.

PLEASANT GROVE, Utah - Police arrested a 39-year-old woman Sunday after the bodies of seven infants were found in a home where she used to live.
Megan Huntsman was booked into the Utah County Jail for investigation of six counts of murder, CBS affiliate KUTV in Salt Lake City reported.
Hunstman’s ex-husband alerted police after finding the body of an infant inside a Pleasant Grove home where the woman had lived untll 2011, The Salt Lake Tribune reported. Pleasant Grove is located about 35 miles south of Salt Lake City.
Police went to the home and found the body of a newborn who appeared to have been full-term. Executing a search warrant, they then discovered the bodies of six additional infants, KUTV reported. The six tiny bodies were found in separate cardboard boxes inside the garage, police Capt. Michael Roberts told the Tribune.
Police believe that over a 10-year period, from 1996 to 2006, Huntsman gave birth to the infants and then killed them. Her ex-husband is believed to be the father but investigators are still working on DNA tests, Roberts said. Police are not pursuing charges against the ex-husband at this point, Roberts said.
The ranch-style home, which is split into two apartments, is owned by the ex-husband’s parents, the Tribune said.
Longtime neighbor Sharon Chipman told the newspaper Huntman’s three daughters still live in the house. She said the two eldest daughters are around 18 to 20 years old, while the youngest is about 13.

A teacher at a London school told a Jewish student ‘I’ll send you to one of your gas chambers’ after she jumped the queue in the dining hall.
The anti-semitic outburst came at the North London Collegiate School, one of Britain’s leading independent day schools for girls.
The female teacher has reportedly apologised to the student, but the school has refused to explain what disciplinary action has been taken. The girl’s father, who has asked for the family to remain anonymous, told the Mail on Sunday: ‘A teacher was passing by and she rushed up to my daughter and said, “Don’t do that or I’ll have to send you to the back of the queue or to one of your gas chambers”.
‘It was very unpleasant, very uncalled for and very unfortunate. My daughter was shocked and upset.’
The school boasts high-profile former students such as actress Rachel Weisz, magazine editor Anna Wintour and television presenter Esther Rantzen and charges almost £6,000 per term in fees. However, it has been criticized for a lack of transparency over the incident, which occurred three months ago.
‘My wife and I would also like the school to make a public statement that there has been an incident and [the remark] was totally unacceptable,’ added the girl’s father.
The school said in a statement that it had promptly commenced an investigation after hearing the allegations and, after seeking specialist legal advice, appropriate action was taken.
