Delta Airlines Hits Back: Calls Ann Coulter's Insults 'Unacceptable'

Following Delta flight 2852 from New York-LGA to West Palm Beach on July 15, political analyst Ann Coulter took to social media to complain about a seat mix-up she experienced.

A Delta spokesman said it appeared Coulter was in the same extra-room row, just in a different seat, but the company was looking into the situation, according to reports. The Washington Post notes this isn't the first time Coulter has publicly aired her issues with Delta, including a complaint a few years ago in which she noted she was seated near a person "who smells like a NYC cabdriver".

"Additionally, your insults about our other customers and employees are unacceptable and unnecessary", Delta said in a second tweet.

Coulter later tweeted that she was informed she was moved due to an "emergency", but that didn't stop the conservative commentator from continuing her anti-Delta rant.

"We are sorry that the customer did not receive the seat she reserved and paid for".

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

Coulter responded to Delta's statement via a separate retweet from an Ann Coulter fanpage. She also claimed their motto must be "How can we make your flight more uncomfortable?" Of course, she ended that tweet with "Delta sucks". Also, it's understandable. While most things that Coulter says are inflammatory and offensive, this is the sort of thing that could happen to any of us.

When she asked a flight attendant why she was booted from her seat, which Coulter said was specifically booked because it had extra space, she was given no explanation other than "I don't know".

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

But some of the sentiment turned on Coulter when Delta revealed that the upgrade she was denied was worth only $30.

Coulter continued her tirade on social media into late Sunday night with tweets.
