Ann Coulter bashes Delta Airlines in tweetstorm

Ann Coulter publicly scorned Delta Air Lines on social media at the weekend for allegedly giving her "carefully chosen" seat to another passenger.

Conservative commentator Ann Coulter took to Twitter to express her displeasure with Delta Airlines about a seating dispute. It appears that Delta didn't know Coulter was upset until she started tweeting.

Coulter unleashed a flood towards the airline after she had to move from a seat (with extra leg room) that she had pre-booked to another seat in the same row.

"We will refund Ms. Coulter's $30 for the preferred seat on the exit row that she purchased". That's when she began a tirade against Delta. She insulted the woman who got her seat, calling her "Dachshund-legged". Coulter also posted a picture of the passenger alleged to have taken her seat. Back in April when a doctor was dragged off a Louisville, Ky. -bound United Airlines flight, Coulter shared her own take. According to Coulter, she had pre-selected seat 15D, which was on an aisle and had extra legroom.

Delta representative Anthony Black told BuzzFeed News said Coulter did not say anything or complain about the de-seating the entire flight.

But this isn't Coulter's first time criticizing airlines this year. "I have pictures so don't lie, @Delta!".

The flight's crew reported that despite initial confusion with the seats, all customers complied with the changes and there were no problems or concerns escalated.

"Additionally, your insults about our other customers and employees are unacceptable and unnecessary", the company's statement continued.

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

Ms. Coulter went on to complain that Delta "spends all this $$$ on attractive aircraft & then hire Nurse Ratchets as flight attendants & gate agents", a reference to Nurse Ratched, the character known to be an overly strict enforcer of the rules in "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest".

"I was in the boarding area 90 minutes before the flight took off, but I was never called to the counter and asked to switch seats", she wrote in the email.

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".

And at least a few people said they would stop flying Delta because of Coulter's experience.
