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.
Some New Yorkers said it was insensitive because of its proximity to where United Flight 175 struck the south tower on 9/11.
The MTA approved the ad and said it was a third-party vendor that put up the sign above ground at the Cortlandt Street R subway stop, directly across the street from the terror attack site.
The ad was part of a wider campaign for United, which apologized on Wednesday for another 9/11-related controversy — putting back into circulation the flight numbers from the Sept. 11 planes.
