Ann Coulter bumped from Delta seat, calls it nation's worst airline

Watch ‘The View’ excoriates Ann Coulter over Delta Twitter tirade Delta's response to political analyst Ann Coulter's public attack on airline's employees, customers following seat mix-up
Freda Brock | 17 July, 2017, 17:00

Ann Coulter's series of tweets targeting Delta Airlines stretched into a second day on Sunday after the conservative author said she lost a prebooked "extra-room" seat on a flight.

She then detailed how she had been asked to move from the seat she had with additional leg room that she carefully had picked ahead of time and booked, posting a photo of the seat and the woman who was given it, and targeting the employees at Delta.

"But at least @Delta was nice @ it", Coulter continued, "summarily snatching my ticket from my hand & ordering me to move w/o explanation, compensation or apology".

The carrier said it will refund the $30.00 Coulter paid for her preferred seat.

"Additionally, your insults about our other customers and employees are unacceptable and unnecessary", the airline said in response to Coulter's tweetstorm. Coulter rebutted it cost her $10,000 in time and effort to do all the legwork to ensure she had legroom. She also suggested that an ideal job for a Delta employee is an East German policeman or a prison guard. However, within 24 hours of the flight's departure, she changed to seat 15D which is by the aisle.

Macron calls for renewed Israeli-Palestinian peace talks at Holocaust service
On Monday, Netanyahu is scheduled to become the first Israeli prime minister to visit Hungary since the end of Communist rule. The Jews arrested were confined for four days at the Vel' d'Hiv velodrome, and from there deported to Auschwitz.

"We are sorry that the customer did not receive the seat she reserved and paid for". And perhaps Coulter could have realized that moving over three seats for a short-haul flight isn't that big of a deal, and if she wanted more pampering she could have flown first class. Many accused Coulter of being angry because a "brown woman" was put in her pre-booked seat, though the race of the woman who was given Coulter's seat is not clear.

"Only people like Ann Coulter could make one take the side of the airline". I would like to look into this further.

The airline said it reached out to Coulter and apologize, but only heard back from her on Sunday evening.
