Delta Pushes Back at Ann Coulter Following Her Tweets

Ann Coulter

Conservative author and political commentator Ann Coulter took to Twitter Inc (NYSE: TWTR) last week to express her disappointment with Delta Air Lines, Inc.

Ann Coulter's recent Twitter attack on Delta Airlines raises new questions about what passengers are entitled to when flying.

Coulter called the woman who was given her seat "dachshund-legged" and said that Delta employees are comparable to prison guards, animal handlers and Stasi policemen.

Delta said Coulter had originally booked a window seat in an exit row, but changed it to one in the aisle less than 24 hours before. The mix up that actually set off the tweet story came at the time of boarding when Delta accidentally moved Coulter to 15A, a window seat.

"We will refund Ms. Coulter's $30 for the preferred seat on the exit row that she purchased".

When there was some confusion with seating assignments during boarding, a flight attendant stepped in and asked that all of the passengers move to the seats noted on their respective tickets.

Coulter has managed to use her alleged inconvenience by Delta to shoehorn her complaints about everything from the Affordable Care Act to immigration.

Delta appeared to have deleted its tweets after they were posted on Sunday afternoon, but not before they were shared thousands of times. In fact, she was placed in another seat in the same row, switching from an aisle seat to a window seat. This is the outspoken commentator #Ann Coulter, who is often seen on Fox News, she's not your average run-of-the-mill compliant airline passenger.

"She was on her original flight, a few seats over from her original seats, same row", a spokesperson for Delta said.

The airline released a critical tweet to Coulter saying, "your insults about our other customers and employees are unacceptable and unnecessary".

While Coulter has yet to write a book about her flight, she had tweeted about it almost 50 times by Sunday morning.

Each of our employees is charged with treating each other as well as our customers with dignity and respect.

The statement by Delta went on to say that Coulter's behavior had been unacceptable and unnecessary.

Coulter's tweets generated a fair amount of support from others on social media, with some of her backers saying they would not fly with the US airline.
