'Clever! Love the new napkins @Delta @DietCoke @CocaCola @ATLairport, ' said Ben Startling III.

And the airline said it's already in the process of removing the napkins from their planes. Write your number down and give it to your plane crush.

There were also spaces to write down a telephone number and a name.

Both the Coca-Cola company and Delta have released statements about the napkins.

A Delta spokesman says the airline rotates Coke products regularly as part of a brand partnership, "but missed the mark with this one". "We worked with our partners at Delta to begin removing the napkins last Monday, replacing them with other designs".

"Can you ship me a box of these napkins so I can use them everywhere?" In March, Heineken had to apologize for its "sometimes lighter is better" beer ad, which critics called racist because a light beer slides across the bar, bypassing several black people, until arriving in front of a lighter-skinned woman. "Honestly I wish this is how all men and women said hi", he said.

However, the cheeky suggestion did not go down well with some passengers, who took to Twitter to complain about the napkins - with one describing them as "creepy AF".

The napkin found on the Delta flight prompts people to write down their name and phone number and give it to their "plane crush". "Not a good look". "Unintentionally creepy" is a complaint voiced by one passenger, and another tweet being widely cited in coverage has a similar theme. "But don't you know it's practically illegal to flirt these days? Sad world, but nice try and not creepy".

"The opposite of romantic", she wrote.

Another customer wrote, "I didn't feel encouragement to do anything with other passengers just cuz of the piece of paper under my drink". "People need to calm down".
