“@AnnCoulter We’re sorry you did not receive the preferred seat you paid for and will refund your $30,” the airline said in a tweet Sunday night.
“Additionally, your insults about our other customers and employees are unacceptable and unnecessary,” the airline said in response to Coulter’s tweetstorm.
The 55-year-old Coulter was dissatisfied with Delta’s reply.
“$30! It cost me $10,000 of my time to pre-select the seat I wanted, investigate type of plane & go back periodically to review seat options,” she tweeted Saturday evening.
“If you thought it was about $30, @Delta, why didn’t you give this woman $30 and let me stay in my PRE-BOOKED, ASSIGNED seat?” she wrote, sharing a picture of the woman who was placed in her seat.
Coulter unleashed her fury against the airline in a Twitter rant that took off about 5:30 p.m. Saturday.
“Just when you think it’s safe to fly them again, the worst airline in America is STILL: @Delta,” Coulter tweeted.
The right-wing commentator followed up the tweet with a photo of the flight attendant she claimed told her to give up the seat for another passenger.
“ ‘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 took her anger to a new level minutes later when she tweeted a picture of a female passenger who apparently got the seat on the New York-to-Florida flight.
“@Delta didn’t give my extra room seat to an air marshall (SIC) or tall person. Here’s the woman given my PRE-BOOKED seat,” she wrote.
She continued berating the airline in a stream of tweets, calling Delta the “suckiest” airline and suggesting a new motto for the airline.
“.@Delta motto: “How can we make your flight more uncomfortable?”
She extended her insults to other passengers, calling the woman who took her seat “dachsund-legged.”
