A Southwest Airlines pilot on a flight to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, recently took to the plane’s loudspeaker and threatened to return the flight to the airport’s departure gate if commuters continued to transfer naked pics to him via the iPhone’s AirDrop function.

iPhone users can use AirDrop to send media content to other Apple devices in close proximity without the use of Wi-Fi or cellular data.

“So here’s the deal, if this continues while we’re on the ground, I’m going to have to pull back to the gate, everybody’s going to have to get off, we’re going to have to get security involved and [your] vacation is going to be ruined,” warned the nudes-weary plane jockey in a viral clip of the incident.

“So you folks, whatever that AirDrop thing is, quit sending naked pictures, and let’s get yourself to Cabo,” ordered the pilot.

Southwest Airlines responded to the trending post by telling The Post, “The safety, security and wellbeing of Customers and Employees is the Southwest Team’s highest priority at all times. When made aware of a potential problem, our employees address issues to support the comfort of those traveling with us.”

Getting unwelcomed kinky pics on an aircraft has regrettably become a part of the traveling experience.

In June, a male traveler on a Southwest flight AirDropped a sexually suggestive picture to his fellow commuters. When the plane touched down, officers took the man off the plane.
