United Airlines' Real Life Contextual Advertising Nightmare

Rough week for United: “A United Airlines ad across the street from ground zero that read ‘You’re going to like where we land’ has been removed after NBC New York reported that some found it inappropriate…. The debate comes a day after United — which is in the midst of a merger with Continental Airlines — apologized for reusing the flight numbers of two hijacked planes used in the 9/11 attacks. Flight numbers 93 and 175 were mistakenly assigned to two flights by Continental Airlines.”
