Coulter sparks twitter row over seat in Delta Airlines

A Delta spokesperson told the Washington Post that Coulter remained in the same row - the exit row, which had extra leg room: "She was moved from an aisle to a window".

Delta said Coulter had originally booked a window seat in an exit row, but changed it to one in the aisle less than 24 hours before. She also compared Delta employees to prison guards and the former East German secret police.

Delta through a prepared statement released on Sunday said that it was disappointed that a passenger chose to attack its employees as well as other customers publicly by posting slanderous and derogatory comments as well as photos across social media.

- Ann Coulter (@AnnCoulter) July 16, 2017.@Delta motto: "How can we make your flight more uncomfortable?"

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

@AnnCoulter We're sorry you did not receive the preferred seat you paid for and will refund your $30. "Each of our employees is charged with treating each other as well as our customers with dignity and respect".

"Hey Delta, you mind telling me why it was an "emergency" to move someone else into the seat I had carefully chosen in advance and booked?"

Delta, for their part, responded to Coulter's complaints just like they would any other person - by asking her to direct message their official Twitter account with her flight information.


Following Delta's response on Sunday, Coulter - who is 6-feet tall - clarified the matter was not about $30.

Coulter said she was ordered "to move w/o explanation, compensation or apology".

Coulter also tweeted that she was still waiting for an explanation.

Delta expects mutual civility throughout the entire travel experience.

After some confusion, according to the airline, a flight attendant stepped in to ask the affected passengers to return to the seats on their respective tickets.

Delta said that all passengers complied and crew members reported no problems.

Brown, the Delta spokesman, couldn't disclose details of the incident, but said that airline representatives would reach out to Coulter, as they would any customer with similar claims.
