US Airways has apologised after a pornographic tweet it sent to a customer went viral.

The customer – known as “Alex” was sent a pornographic image after she complained about her flight to Portland, Oregon being delayed.

On Monday the airline responded courteously but inadvertently attached a pornographic image.

US Airways quickly removed the tweet but it was still online long enough for hundreds of Twitter users to save the offending image.

The airline has since apologised for the tweet.

“We apologise for an inappropriate image recently shared as a link in one of our responses. We’ve removed the tweet and are investigating,” it said on its Twitter feed.

Spokesman Matt Miller said the photo was sent to the @USAirways account from an unidentified individual.

“Our investigation has determined that the image was initially posted to our Twitter feed by another user. We captured the tweet to flag it as inappropriate. Unfortunately the image was inadvertently included in a response to a customer”.
