Ann Coulter Rants Against Delta, Delta Pushes Back

Delta Airlines hit back at Conservative commentator Ann Coulter who launched a two-day Twitter tirade after she was booted out of a seat with extra leg room on a Delta flight.

Another airline is in the news, this time in the spotlight thanks to Ann Coulter's barrage of tweets over the weekend.

"The worst airline in America" she said in a tweet Saturday night.

"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", she wrote, returning to Twitter the next morning to mockingly say the company's motto is "How can we make your flight more uncomfortable?".

"At the time of boarding, Delta inadvertently moved Coulter to 15A, a window seat, when working to accommodate several passengers with seating requests", the statement said. The carrier said it will refund the 30-dollars Coulter paid for her preferred seat. 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".

She also tweeted, Delta training is "inducing normal ppl to brutally torture fellow man". She did not address the tenor of her tweets (surprise!), but Coulter has signaled that this is not what she deems to be a proper explanation.

Despite this, Coulter has continued her screed against the airline on Twitter.

"If you thought it was about $30, @Delta, why didn't you give this woman $30 and let me stay in my PRE-BOOKED, ASSIGNED seat?", she tweeted along with a photo of female passenger.

In her email, she complained that it was not enough for "Delta to boss customers around when we're in their control".

According to Forbes, Delta responded that Coulter was asked to move just a few feet from her original seat- to another in the same row.

Some time after her flight from NY landed Friday, Coulter began to publicly expose the indignities she had documented on board. After almost a day, Delta replied and took her to task on Twitter. Delta changed it and gave her extra legroom to someone else.

This situation, by the way, was not the other passenger's fault, and any sympathy that one might have had for Coulter evaporated when she kept volleying insults about this perceived injustice.

In a separate statement, Delta added, "Each of our employees is charged with treating each other as well as our customers with dignity and respect".

"Delta expects mutual civility throughout the entire travel experience", the statement said.
