Delta fired back at conservative pundit Ann Coulter on Sunday for what the airline called an “unacceptable and unnecessary” series of tweets after she was denied the seat she had pre-booked on a Saturday flight.
Coulter went ballistic on social media after she was moved from the aisle seat on a flight from New York to Palm Beach, Florida, to a window seat in the same exit row.
“Her new seat was in the same row, just not the exact seat she had selected,” a Delta spokesperson told TheWrap.
The commentator and best-selling author had tweeted a photo of the passenger who was seated in her pre-booked seat for an unexplained emergency and ripped the passenger in another tweet as “the dachshund-legged woman.”
The airline released a critical tweet to Coulter saying, “your insults about our other customers and employees are unacceptable and unnecessary.”
The six-foot-tall Coulter had booked an aisle seat for the extra legroom during the flight from New York to Palm Beach, Florida.
“Hey @Delta,” she tweeted on Saturday. “You mind telling me why it was an ‘emergency’ to move someone else into the seat I had carefully chosen in advance and booked?”
And then Coulter persisted by tweeting a photo of the woman even though she was not to blame for the seat reassignment.
