What exactly did Delta Airlines expect Ann Coulter to do when the airline summarily bumped her from a reserved “Comfort+’’ seat that featured 3 inches of additional legroom?
The 6 ft. tall leggy blonde political commentator was none too pleased with how the incident was handled by the airline and immediately took to social media to let her 1.6 million followers know.
Coulter unleashed on Delta, and given the airline industry’s recent history of poor customer service, it certainly didn’t help matters. Either way, her effort drew plenty of attention online.
“Why are you taking me out of the extra room seat I specifically booked?’’ Coulter tweeted.
She included a photo of a flight attendant in the tweet, who she said replied, “I don’t know.”
And the lucky recipient of Coulter’s reserved seat, who did not appear to be very amused, was spared no pain, have her photo suddenly blasted across the internet.
And the conservative author raged on, in full fury.
Almost two hours later, potentially post-flight, she was still at it:
Needless to say, Coulter’s critics, primarily on the left, suddenly took a liking to Delta, while her supporters joined in the outrage.
If it’s any consolation, she did get an apology tweet from Delta, signed by “HJB.”
