(NY Daily News) -- “Inappropriate” doesn’t begin to cover it.
A shockingly graphic tweet by U.S. Airways featuring a woman and an airplane has led to an investigation and red-faced apology by the airline.
A photo of a naked woman lying exposed on a bed with a toy plane between her legs was publicly shared by the airline late Monday afternoon while responding to disgruntled customers, angry about a recent flight delay.

US Airways apologizes after a graphic image appeared in their Twitter feed.
