Ann Coulter Put Delta on Blast for Making Her Change Seats

Delta Airlines has offered conservative firebrand Ann Coulter a $30 refund after she flew into a rage Saturday for being booted from her "extra room seat" on a flight. Coulter called the carrier "the worst airline in america" after she was asked to move from her pre-booked seat to another spot.

Coulter claimed she was upset over the alleged seat change because she took the time to "investigate" Delta's aircraft and meticulously chose her "pre-booked seat". When it came time to board the plane, however, Delta reassigned her to 15A, a window seat in the same row.

"We're sorry you did not receive the preferred seat you paid for and will refund your $30", the airline told Coulter on Twitter.

The airline said that while there was some confusion over seating assignments initially, all passengers complied with a flight attendant's request to move to the seats listed on their ticket.

While people are usually sympathetic to passengers who have high-profile customer service problems with airlines, a lot of people on Twitter were apparently pleased with Coulter's Delta despair.

Coulter wondered on Twitter why it was an emergency "to move someone else into the seat I had carefully chosen in advance and booked?" But as Coulter tweeted into Sunday night, Delta released an account of events from flight 2582 that sounded significantly less dire.

British promising Simon Yates had no clue of falling down on the best young rider honor. All too soon the gap dropped under 10 seconds, and it seemed the game was up.

Less than 24 hours before takeoff, according to the airline, Coulter switched her selection to 15D - an aisle seat in the same row. Some users were quick to mock Ann for having spent her entire weekend ranting about the airline over, what some would say is, a mere $30.

She also said Delta gave her seat to someone who wasn't taller than her.

She extended her insults to other passengers, calling the woman who took her seat "dachsund-legged". "I have pictures so don't lie, @Delta!".

Delta added that while its social media and customer care teams made several attempts to connect with Coulter to apologize for the seat mix-up, they did not hear back from Coulter until Sunday evening.

She fired back again shortly after, saying she's "STILL WAITING FOR AN EXPLANATION FROM THE BRILLIANT, TALENTED, HARDWORKING STAFF" at Delta.
