Delta Fires Back at Ann Coulter for 'Unacceptable' Insults to Passengers, Crew

A look through the airline's past tweets shows a customer service representative tried to contact Coulter at the time of her problem.

According to her, they had given her seat to a person who was neither old, nor a child, nor sick, nor an "air marshall or a tall person".

Coulter tweeted at Delta on Saturday - apparently after her flight from New York's La Guardia airport to West Palm Beach, Florida, had landed - calling it the "worst airline in America".

Delta Air Lines explained there was confusion with seating assignments during boarding and a flight attendant asked passengers to move to the seats printed on their respective tickets. Coulter said she was ordered "to move w/o explanation, compensation or apology".

The transaction was disclosed in a filing with the Securities & Exchange Commission, which is accessible through this hyperlink . Following the transaction, the senior vice president now owns 19,037 shares in the company, valued at approximately $240,627.68.

Coulter said she was upset about the seating change because she took the time to investigate the aircraft and choose her pre-booked seat.

The blustering Twitter assault on Delta Airlines began at roughly 6 p.m. on Saturday and extended into Sunday night when Coulter became livid after losing her premium seat to a fellow passenger whom she described as having dachshund-like legs.

Back when almost everyone else on the planet seemed outraged at United Airlines over the violent de-seating of a paying passenger, Ann Coulter, as she so often does, shared her own unique take.

In response, Delta said it will be refunding Coulter the cost of the upgrade - $30.

Stasi policeman? However, what started out as complaints eventually turned into a public attack on the airline's employees and customers.

"Her actions are unnecessary and unacceptable".

Now Delta has had its fair share of bad news over the years, including in the wake of the United incident where a passenger was dragged off the flight. Delta expects mutual civility throughout the entire travel experience. The company said it wasn't aware of any until Coulter's comments appeared on Twitter.

Plane evacuated after passenger 'passed gas'
The authorities of the flight termed the decision as a medical call and did not answer any further. American Airlines, however, said the smell was due to a mechanical issue.
