An airline passenger given a boarding pass with the confirmation code 'H8GAYS' on it has received an apology.

The offending code was printed on passenger Jeff White's boarding pass for a Delta Air Lines flight from Florida to New York, according to the Washington Post.

"I was worried that another customer might think I somehow picked that code,"  White said.

A Delta spokesman apologised said the codes were computer-generated and "completely random".

White said he was an information technology major, and was surprised the airline had not blocked the code he received.

He was sure the company would have removed other offensive codes.
