The Facebook advertisement featured the image of a woman whose bosom appeared to be showing, accompanied by the caption “OMG! (tap to see)”.

But by tapping the picture, the full image actually shows her holding the numbers “99” on her chest. The figure refers to the airline’s cheap fare rate.

“You are not seeing things! 10,000 seats from RM99,” read the caption of the full image.

PETALING JAYA: Low-cost airline AirAsia has come under fire from social media users over an advertisement deemed sexually connotative.

The advertisement, posted on AirAsia’s Facebook page today, features a drawing of a woman with two semi-circles on her chest area.

A caption above her head reads: “OMG! (tap to see)”.

Only when the thumbnail is clicked is it revealed that the semi-circles are the tops of two figure nines, which the woman is holding up to show “99”.

At the bottom of the picture, a line reads: “You’re not seeing things! 10,000 seats from RM99. Book @ airasia.com.”

The advertisement was slammed for its suggestiveness, with 137 comments and 72 shares at the time of writing.
.

In a statement following the backlash, AirAsia said the advertisement had been removed upon review.

It also apologised for the inconvenience caused.
