Delta Airlines responds to Ann Coulter tirade: 'Your insults are unacceptable & unnecessary'

Posted July 17, 2017

Coulter was on a flight to West Palm Beach, Florida, from New York's LaGuardia airport when she was reassigned from an aisle to a window seat on the same exit row, with extra leg room.

A Delta spokesman said it appeared Coulter was in the same extra-room row, just in a different seat, but the company was looking into the situation, according to reports. She paid $30 for this seat selection. At the time of boarding, Delta inadvertently moved Coulter to 15A, a window seat, when working to accommodate several passengers with seating requests.

"So glad I took time investigate the aircraft & PRE-BOOK a specific seat on @Delta, so some woman could waltz at the last min & take my seat", Coulter tweeted.

Ch-ch-check out Delta's full statement on the matter (below)!

In a series of scathing tweets, Coulter called Delta "the worst airline in America" and claimed the airline gave away the "extra room seat" she purchased before the flight departed. She also complained that she was given a window seat after she reserved one on the aisle. "And we hold each other accountable when that does not happen".

Coulter also tweeted that she was still waiting for an explanation.

Coulter's barrage of tweets was like rapid gunfire over this rather quick flight from NY to Florida.

- Ann Coulter (@AnnCoulter) July 16, 2017Hey @Delta, if it was so important for the dachshund-legged woman to take my seat, she should have BOOKED THE SEAT IN ADVANCE.

Instead of letting it go and maybe sit with the mindset that this woman may have needed this seat for a very good reason, Coulter's claws emerged on Twitter. In other words, you're promised a seat on the plane, nothing more.

Delta Airlines' seating policy can be found on their website. According to Christopher Elliott, anairline consumer advocate, this means major carriers can pretty much do what they want.

But you get the idea.

If airlines were Democrats, the passengers would be black voters.

The flight's crew reported that despite initial confusion with the seats, all customers complied with the changes and there were no problems or concerns escalated. Airlines can also deny boarding if a passenger is intoxicated, fails to listen to flight attendants or is barefoot.

Ann was allegedly offered a refund of the $30 she paid for her preferred seat.
