I SUSPECT ANN COULTER WILL BE RICHER SOON

She paid for an upgraded seat on a Delta flight and was forced to give it up with no explanation.

She ripped into Delta by tweeting about how they treated her.

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.

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.”

 
Meanwhile, Delta is fighting back trying to make it sound like it was no big deal. Only $30.

Sorry, Delta, but you broke a contract for a seat. You are liable.

Delta Airlines has fired back at Ann Coulter — revealing on Twitter how her two-day temper tantrum was over a measly $30.

“We’re sorry you did not receive the preferred seat you paid for and will refund your $30,” the company tweeted on Sunday night.

“Additionally, your insults about our other customers and employees are unacceptable and unnecessary,” it said, in response to Coulter’s weekend-long Twitter rant.

The conservative columnist spent the better part of Saturday and Sunday calling out Delta and a random female passenger after the airline gave the woman the “extra-room” seat that she had booked.

At 6-feet-tall, Coulter had shelled out a few more dollars for the “Comfort+” digs — which come with 3 additional inches of legroom. But it was unclear exactly how much she paid, until now.

Social media users were quick to call her out on Sunday night for making such a big stink about it.

“Ann Coulter was tripping over $30. Wow!” tweeted one person.

“Lmao Delta peeled 30 bucks off of their cash roll and dropped it on the floor in front of Coulter and told her to STFU,” another said.

Coulter, being the avid tweeter that she is, spotted Delta’s response and fired a few more of her own.

“STILL WAITING FOR AN EXPLANATION FROM THE BRILLIANT, TALENTED, HARDWORKING STAFF AT,” she wrote. “No one would think that 28 hours (& counting) for an explanation is due to @Delta’s incompetence. @Delta employees MUCH too talented!”

    If this happened to any one of the detractors, they’d be screaming louder than Coulter in a heartbeat.

    Airlines need to quit being such dicks to their customers. Whether it’s $30 or $3000 dollars, if you pay for something, that’s what you should get. Being retired, I never fly anywhere unless I have no choice. Last time I did, it was to a funeral, but I’d rather drive 5000 miles than have to endure all the bullshit that comes with the airline industry. Shitty service, uncomfortable seats, screaming children, the TSA, delays, lost baggage, no meals, expensive drinks, non-refundable tickets, and the list could go on and on.

    Like Ann, I too would like to hear the facts. Delta is quick to announce how it is all over $30, when in fact it is NOT the money. If it was only thirty dollars, than give that money to whoever it was you gave the seat to, and send them back to steerage like they deserved.

    Sorry, but in this day and age, flying is no longer the joyful and fun adventure it once was. For the most part, you are treated like a piece of garbage from the moment you pull into the airport until the moment you leave. Badges everywhere that can do as they want, treat you as they want, and if you so much as speak out, you are labelled a problem and escorted away with the treat of never being allowed to fly again. And don’t think for a moment that this “power trip” is not embraced by every single employee of the airlines and the airport. Everyone of them as the power of the law behind them, and all it takes is an accusation and you are punished.

    What I want to know is why Ann was asked to give up her seat as opposed to volunteers. And who is this person who got her seat that somehow deserves it more than the person who paid for it. Was she a special needs case? And if so, why did he or she not plan for her flight like so many others did. It’s not the lousy $30 and the airline knows it, but is using this as a tactic to belittle Ms. Coulter. This alone makes me despise them all the more, as they are trying to belittle someone because that person chose to speak out.

    This abuse of authority and control has gone to the heads of airlines these days, and this is the reason that have the reputation that they so richly deserve.

    I do hope Ann takes them to task. Airlines need to be forced into treating us like people again. And if real capitalism existed, airlines that conducted themselves as Delta did here, would find themselves out of business right quick, and in its place would be an airline that value each and every customer as they should.

    Also, upon further reading, I see where the airline said they did this seat change up in order to accommodate a passengers “request” to seat in Ann’s seat. Well, a request is something that can be denied. Whereas a contractual obligation is one that must be adhered to. Sorry, but poor planning or a lack of planning on the part of the woman who took Ann’s seat does not mean that Ann must be inconvenienced. Now, the woman could have ASKED Ann to trade seats, but Ann was under no obligation to do so.

    Finally, and this is key for me. Delta is quite smug in their defense of what they did, but why was the woman who was given Ann’s seat, more important to Delta than Ms. Coulter? The woman did NOT pay the extra $30 to be in that seat…Ann did. The woman chose to book her flight last minute, whereas Ann booked her flight and chose her seat timely. So, we are to reward someone who fails to prepare, and punish someone who took the time to plan out and go by the rules. It is not the $30, it is what is right.

    And the airline attacking Ann for what, speaking out. How DARE you criticize Delta. How dare you call them out even though they were the ones who caused this whole issue to begin with. Ann did nothing wrong, but the airline chose to attack her as opposed to just saying sorry.

    And it is this tyrannical stance that Delta has taken that sickens me. You WILL sit where we tell you. We do NOT care what seat you chose and paid for. We will attack you if you tell anyone about our mistake. We will belittle YOU for telling others about our inability to do what is fair and right.

    The woman who took Ann’s seat should have been told too bad. Think about it…one of two people had to suffer that flight. It would either be Ann, the person who booked her seat in a timely and proper manner, or the woman who waited until the last moment, and expected to be accommodated at the expense of others, and did not pay for that seat. Why in the world Delta chose this woman over Ann is something we want to know. Why did this woman deserve Ann’s seat more than Ann herself? What made her so special? Or is this communism…the seat goes to who needs it the most, and not the person who paid for it? Well hell, then why didn’t Delta move the woman and her entire family to first class and force the first class passengers to sit in steerage? It’s all the same.

    Delta is wrong, and they know it. That is why they are attacking Ann and belittling her and claiming this is all over a measly $30. Well, if the issue was just $30, than give the $30 to the woman who took Ann’s seat and tell her to shut up and sit in her assigned seat. But Delta didn’t do that. So, it is MORE than just $30.

    And to take a page from the playbook of liberals, one look at the flight attendant tells me all I need to know. They attacked Ann because she was a conservative and white. Isn’t that what you do when you have no other argument and take your stance based on anything but fact?

    Delta you are wrong. And your attacks and refusal to admit YOU MADE A MISTAKE tells me who you are. I know you don’t give a crap, but I will remember this next time I fly. Keep your $30 and stick it. You do not have the moral high ground here, and you are wrong. A better airline would have simply apologized.

    It’s simple. The woman who was given Ann’s seat is brown. Ann is white. Affirmative action and virtue signalling, so they’re smug & happy little SJWs at Delta.

    That’s all it is. Delta apparently had no idea that Ann Coulter could make her voice heard; most times they get away with this kind of crap, as us little people haven’t got a megaphone.

    I hope Ann sues them and collects bigly! Probably won’t happen, though. They’ve got loopholes to cover just about everything in the ticketing fine print.

    Here is a pic of the woman that got Ann’s seat. She doesn’t look black. Did this woman make a fuss over not being allowed to sit with her firends/family, due to her failing to book her plane trip in a timely manner, so Delta, not caring the least about single travelers, forced Ann to move so that this woman could have her request met. Hey, if you want to ASK if someone wants to give up their seat in order to help someone sit with friends and family, that is one thing. Or, if you want to offer some form of compensation, such as an extra bag of peanuts all the way up to a bump in first class or a free flight…then by all means, do it. But it is up to the passenger to accept or reject the offer.

    This was Ann’s seat. She paid for it. Now, did Delta use the ideaology that it was better to inconvenience a single rider in order to accommodate a bunch of people, then that is not fair. That is communism. What if Delta rented apartments, and Ann paid for a large three bedroom two bath apartment for just herself. Does that mean that a family of 4 can have the landlord evict her and force her to live in their one bedroom apartment while they take over her larger one?

    I think Ann has a good case and a damn good reason to be pissed. We live in a time where most businesses no longer give a shit about its customers and treat the like shit in order to do whatever it is they want. We see this time and time again with airlines, cable TV companies, internet companies, computer companies, and it is high time they get spanked for this. It is NOT the lousy $30, it is the point of the matter here. And shame on Delta for trying to marginalize Ann by claiming she had a hissy fit over a simply $30. Well if $30 is no big deal, then why does Delta charge extra for certain luggage. I mean, how dare they make customers check their baggage for a lousy $30. How dare they charge customers for a drink that cost them next to nothing…it’s only small amounts of money…right Delta. So don’t get a;; righteous over $30 assholes, as if it was your $30, you seem to have your hand out right quick and jammed into everyone of your customer’s pockets in order to get it. So who are the grubby greedy f#@ks here?

    Between shitty airline attitude and customer service and getting groped by TSA perverts, it’s just not worth traveling anymore.
