Ann Coulter Slams Delta on Twitter Amid Seat Dispute; Delta Fires Back

Ann Coulter's recent Twitter attack on Delta Airlines raises new questions about what passengers are entitled to when flying.

The Atlanta-based airline responded to the controversial media figure who was traveling on Delta Flight 2852 from NY to West Palm Beach, Florida, by chiding Coulter for her "derogatory and slanderous" posts about its customers and employees.

Coulter quickly took to twitter to voice her disapproval, bashing airline employees and posting a photo of the woman who was given her seat. When it came time to board the plane, however, Delta reassigned her to 15A, a window seat in the same row. The airline said a flight attendant had stepped in to deal with "confusion" arising from the seat reassignment and that "all customers complied and the flight departed without incident".

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

According to Coulter, a Delta employee "snatched" the ticket from her hands and allegedly demanded that she move to another seat without "explanation, compensation or apology".

Coulter continued her social media tirade well into Sunday night.

But her frustration may have taken a back-seat to a Tweet where she directed anger at the "dachshund-legged woman" who was given the seat she was paid for.

"We are sorry that the customer did not receive the seat she reserved and paid for".

The conservative commentator said she was told the seat was given to the woman, who appeared to be sitting with her family, for an "emergency".

"She added, ".@Delta didn't give my extra room seat to an air marshall or tall person. Coulter - and this was her sin, in the eyes of Delta - complained about it.

The outspoken commentator not only conveyed her fury in a tweet, but she took pictures of the other passengers in her area as well as the airline attendants to apparently prove her point on her cramped surroundings.

Ann Coulter wants everyone to know that we're STILL mad at airlines!

She wrote on Twitter: "I have been the picture of politeness".

Coulter even went so far as to ask Florida radio host, Joyce Kaufman, to invite her onto the show so the two of them could call the CEO of Delta Airlines together, supposedly in an attempt to get answers from the company while live on air.

Delta expects mutual civility throughout the entire travel experience.

Tariq Nasheed compared Coulter's views on liberals and minorities having "victim mentality" versus her own sense of victimhood.
