Delta Switched Ann Coulter's Seat, and a Political War Broke Out

Ann Coulter

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.

Coulter claimed she was upset over the alleged seat change because she took the time to "investigate" Delta's aircraft and meticulously chose her "pre-booked seat".

The airline responded to Coulter's tweets with a statement on Sunday, promising to refund the commentator's $30 for pre-booking the seat.

"Additionally, your insults about our other customers and employees are unacceptable and unnecessary", Delta added in a follow-up tweet.

The conservative political commentator often unleashes her anger on social media, but instead of her usual political rants, Coulter used the power of her platforms on Saturday to berate Delta Airlines. She also quipped that Delta's motto is: "How can we make your flight more uncomfortable?" "Each of our employees is charged with treating each other as well as our customers with dignity and respect".

Delta said that while some confusion related to seating assignments had taken place initially, all of its passengers complied with the request made by the flight attendant to move to the seats that were listed on their individual tickets.

"Suckiest @Delta moved me from my PRE-BOOKED SEAT & gave it to some woman, not elderly, child, or sick". And we hold each other accountable when that does not happen.

On Saturday, July 15, Ann Coulter was subjected to her very own airline seating misfortune after which she revoked her rating of United as "the worst airline in America" and gave the title instead to Delta Airlines.

Coulter even went so far as to ask Florida radio host, Joyce Kaufman, to invite her onto the show so the two of them could call the CEO of Delta Airlines together, supposedly in an attempt to get answers from the company while live on air.

Delta expects mutual civility throughout the entire travel experience.

Coulter also tweeted that she was still waiting for an explanation. Following the flight, crew members reported that there were no problems or concerns escalated.
