Ann Coulter gets pushback from Delta Air Lines over seat change tweets

Ann Coulter isn't happy with Delta

Surprisingly, people commiserated with Coulter's predicament.

It wasn't the most obvious moral outrage.

Delta and other airlines also reserve the right to deny boarding to customers with confirmed reservations if the flight is overbooked, a fact that landed United in hot water back in April when it forcefully removed a passenger from his seat.

That hasn't stopped her war.

Coulter started by pointing out that the issue was not the $30 but rather that Delta had unceremoniously denied her a seat that she had pre booked and paid for.

But because she's Ann Coulter, the tweets were filled with unnecessary insults to the flight attendants, employee training, and even the "dachshund-legged" woman who took her original seat.

Some time after her flight from NY landed Friday, Coulter began to publicly expose the indignities she had documented on board.

Delta has since responded to Coulter's comments adding that her complaints turned into personal attacks on passengers and employees. The way she writes it was "some woman, not elderly, child, or sick" does kind of make you wonder. She tweeted she was moved "w/o explanation, compensation or apology". Of course, she ended that tweet with "Delta sucks".

Coulter said some awful things about the Delta staff after she didn't get to sit in an extra leg-room seat, which she had purchased.

Coulter was on Delta Airlines flight 2862 from New York City's LaGuardia Airport to Palm Beach International Airport in West Palm Beach, Fla. Delta says it "inadvertently" moved Coulter as passengers were boarding and it was "disappointed" with Coulter's remarks. However, within 24 hours of the flight's departure, she changed to seat 15D which is by the aisle. It is important to note both the seats had the same legroom. The airline said a flight attendant had stepped in to deal with "confusion" arising from the seat reassignment and that "all customers complied and the flight departed without incident".

Specifically Delta Airlines, which was the subject of a turbulent Twitter tantrum from the political pundit after a not-so-great flight experience over the weekend.

Following Delta's response on Sunday, Coulter - who is 6-feet tall - clarified the matter was not about $30.

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