The nastiest feud in the airline industry has taken another turn.

On Tuesday, Emirates released a commercial ridiculing United Airlines after disturbing video surfaced of law enforcement violently removing a passenger from one of the Chicago-based carrier's flights.

In a dig at United and its CEO Oscar Munoz, Emirates offers a modified version of the US airline's famous "Fly the friendly skies" slogan.

In addition, Emirates uses the new ad to remind the public of the many accolades it has won over the past year.

See reactions to the video around the world:

NEVER flying @united ever again! Horrific, brutal, intolerable treatment of passenger, + tone-deaf "apology" from CEO. #UnitedAirlines
Dear United Airlines: People have smart phones.
Perhaps @MerriamWebster can help #United Airlines with the definition of "volunteer"
United Airlines to United Airlines: "I see your legging-gate, and I raise you a passenger beating" #UnitedAirlines #United #flight3411
Look on the bright side, United Airlines. After this incident, you'll never have to worry about a flight being overbooked again.

Poor planning on your part doesn't constitute an emergency on ours. Fly Southwest. Fly Delta. Hell, fly Spirit. Not #UnitedAirlines

BACK TO SLIDE

Over the past few years, United along with American and Delta have been highly critical of the Dubai-based airline. The US trio has accused Emirates along with Etihad and Qatar Airways of cheating through $50 billion of government subsidies. The same time, the US airlines have lobbied to curtail their Middle Eastern rivals' access to the US market.

In March, United Airlines employees held a rally at Newark Liberty International Airport to protest Emirates' new flight from Newark to Athens, Greece.

Earlier this year, Munoz told Business Insider that the Middle Eastern airlines are a threat to US jobs. Emirates president Sir Tim Clark fired back last month calling the accusations "infantile."
