Delta hits back at Ann Coulter after her tweetstorm against the airline

She also snarked, "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".

- Ann Coulter (@AnnCoulter) July 16, 2017.@Delta motto: "How can we make your flight more uncomfortable?" On Saturday, she declared "the worst airline in America" to be not United, but Delta Air Lines - which allegedly committed the offense of de-seating Ann Coulter. "Coulter tweeted an image of the woman who took her seat, adding that "@Delta didn't give my extra room seat to an air marshall or tall person.

Coulter, who has 1.6 million followers, likened Delta employees to Nurse Ratched and suggested the ideal job for staff would be a prison guard, an animal handler or Stasi officer. She has also been retweeting past negative stories involving Delta.

The 55-year-old often slams liberals and people of colour for playing the "victim card." The airline further said it reassigned Coulter to another window seat on the same row to take in seating requests from other passengers.

The airline was quoted by Reuters as saying in a now-deleted Tweet the airline is "sorry you did not receive the preferred seat you paid for".

Coulter posted a series of at least 32 tweets after she said the airline gave away an "extra room seat" she had purchased before a flight from NY to Florida had departed on Saturday. And we hold each other accountable when that does not happen.

Ann Coulter probably won't be flying on Delta Airlines any time soon.

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

Coulter has been an unhappy customer since at least 2010, when she wrote that her Delta flight to Portland got disrupted and that the ticketing agent she spoke with "deserves to be the worst employee multiple award-winner".

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.
