Malaysian Airlines, which still hasn’t found the plane which disappeared this spring decided to try a new promotional campaign.

“Want to go somewhere but don’t know where?” read the post on Twitter, part of a promotion of special deals by the national carrier

The airline has apologized and deleted the tweet.[su_center_ad]

    ‘Lost in translation’ & ‘Taken out of context’ makes the perfect marketing storm…
    They were trying to get folks to look at all the new packages for destinations…

    I thought the worst promotional idea was win a dream weekend date with Anomaly to a Christian Mingle relationships conference?
