Delta Airlines responds to Ann Coulter tirade: 'Your insults are unacceptable & unnecessary'

Delta Airlines responds to Ann Coulter tirade: 'Your insults are unacceptable & unnecessary'

"But convicted pill-mill doctor should be deported".

Coulter unleashed a flood towards the airline after she had to move from a seat (with extra leg room) that she had pre-booked to another seat in the same row. Coulter also tweeted that she was still waiting for an explanation.

Delta and other airlines also reserve the right to deny boarding to customers with confirmed reservations if the flight is overbooked, a fact that landed United in hot water back in April when it forcefully removed a passenger from his seat. One tweet suggested racism at the heart of Coulter's ire (the other passenger had a dark complexion.) Another tweet tried to connect what happened to the conservative commentator with President Trump's immigration policies and the travel ban.

It's hard to believe that Ann Coulter, the woman who once said, "Any growing interest in soccer can only be a sign of the nation's moral decay", or "I think the government should be spying on all Arabs, engaging in torture as a televised spectator sport, dropping daisy cutters wantonly throughout the Middle East, and sending liberals to Guantanamo", could say anything more outrageous.

Ann was allegedly offered a refund of the $30 she paid for her preferred seat.

Delta Airlines' seating policy can be found on their website. "She was moved from an aisle to a window". According to Delta, those seats provide up to three inches of extra space.

"'Why are you taking me out of the extra room seat I specifically booked, @Delta?'" Coulter tweeted alongside it. "'Flight attendant: "'I don't know".

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.

Actress assault case: Dileep makes the policemen laugh in jail
The prosecution had asserted not to give bail to the actor in the wake of various reports surfacing online supporting the actor. Dileep's advocates can file a bail petition in higher courts but the actor will have to spend the weekend in Aluva sub-jail.

The airline's statement appeared only to incense Ms. Coulter, who continued the fight late into Sunday night and early Monday morning.

Coulter's comments against the airline ranged from calling Delta "the worst airline in America" to criticizing the airline's WiFi.

A few years later, she wrote that she paid $1,500 for a ticket "near someone who smells like a NYC cabdriver". She suggested that the airline had "SJWs" or social justice warriors, running its customer service and that Delta's response was "facist". Like a soda fountain without cups.

"The airline contract of carriage doesn't have any provision that you'll get a specific seat", Elliott told Yahoo Finance.

After almost a day, Delta replied and took her to task on Twitter. The airline tweeted some other things as well. "Now, we have to worry about him flying drunk".

"The country will be overwhelmed, more than it already is, with the third world", she said.

Surprisingly, people commiserated with Coulter's predicament.
