Delta fires back at Ann Coulter after she unleashed viral tweet-storm bashing the airline

Delta Scolds Ann Coulter Following Twitter Rant, $30 Refund

Coulter tweeted a photo of the passenger who was given her seat to her 1.6 million followers, complaining that she wasn't "an air marshall or tall person", nor was she "elderly, child, or sick".

By Sunday it was reported that Coulter's new seat was in the same row, but across the aisle, and offered the same extra leg room benefit she had paid for.

Coulter posted a photo Saturday of the passenger she said was in the seat for which she paid extra in advance.

"But at least @Delta was nice @ it", Coulter continued, "summarily snatching my ticket from my hand & ordering me to move w/o explanation, compensation or apology".

"We will refund Ms. Coulter's $30 for the preferred seat on the exit row that she purchased". Saturday night saw a surge of tweets that five-starred the airline.

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.

The conservative commentator said she was told the seat was given to the woman, who appeared to be sitting with her family, for an "emergency".

July 15, 2017Coulter said a flight attendant responded "I don't know" when asked why the "extra-room seat I specifically booked" was given to another customer. "Congratulations to Ann Coulter on being so very bad that people are actually siding with an airline", one Twitter user wrote.

"Her actions are unnecessary and unacceptable", the statement added.

Coulter didn't immediately reply to questions, including why she made a decision to photograph and publicize her co-flyer's faces. Some users were quick to mock Ann for having spent her entire weekend ranting about the airline over, what some would say is, a mere $30. "That's what offends you". "I have pictures so don't lie, @Delta!". The policy explicitly states that "Delta accommodates the seating requirements of customers with certain types of disabilities", which might lead to seating changes regardless of whether someone has pre-booked a seat.
