Delta allegedly boots Ann Coulter from reserved seat

Written by  Michael Hechtman

Conservative columnist Ann Coulter flew into a fit of fury Saturday after Delta Airlines booted her from her reserved “Comfort+’’ seat — which comes with 3 additional inches of legroom — and gave it to another passenger.

.@Delta didn’t give my extra room seat to an air marshall or tall person. Here’s the woman given my PRE-BOOKED seat: pic.twitter.com/iDNB8xXXOd

In a two-hour tweeting tantrum,she quoted her exchange with a flight attendant: “Why are you taking me out of the extra room seat I specifically booked?’’ she asked.

Their answer, she said, was “I don’t know.’’

The 6-foot-tall Coulter, who is 55, tweeted a picture of the woman who got her aisle seat on the flight from LaGuardia to Florida, noting, “Delta didn’t give my extra room seat to an air marshal or tall person.’’

A Delta spokesman said it appeared Coulter was in the same extra-room row, just in a different seat. But he promised to look into it.

One Twitter user, clearly not a fan of the columnist, wrote. “Ann Coulter is having a bad day which makes my day better. Thanks Delta.”

Sue 'em, Ann. I spent from Friday morning at 9:00 am until 7:00 pm sitting around at the Detroit airport because of the stupidity at Delta. I will never, ever book another flight on Delta as long as I live.

I doubt she can sue them successfully. What is her actual loss besides a little comfort? What she can do & did do is put it out to her well over a million followers who can now cancel planned flights with Delta & go with other airlines instead.

And what is it with the airlines these days; that they seem to think that they can change and move their customers around or off their planes without real reasons? Appears the airlines need some lessons in customer relations?

And the only way to teach them some manners is to hit them right in the pocket book. That's all these arrogant bastards know. Hopefully, enough people will not fly on their crappy airline that they will feel the pinch. Maybe their stock price will drop as well.

BOYCOTT DELTA

Airlines are doing stupid all the time these days. Forcing a Doctor off a plane by dragging him down the aisle, water dripping on passengers, forcing a mom to hold her 2 year old for the entire flight when the kid had a paid for seat, and now bumping a paying customer without reason from a reserved seat.

She will likely sue Delta for this.

I would have thought Anne would have been flying business or first class...having said that when one pays for a specific seat they shouldn't be removed from it for someone else. What was so special about the other woman?

She wasn't a known Conservative like Anne.

She needs to Sue Delta!! These airlines are NOT going to change until we make it very expensive for them!!!
