Ann Coulter says Delta is the 'worst airline in America' because she had to switch seats

The conservative TV personality went on a two-hour-long Twitter rant over the incident.

Ann Coulter is on another Twitter tirade, but this time the topic isn't political.

The conservative author unleashed a series of tweets Saturday calling Delta the "worst airline in America."

Apparently, Coulter was asked to switch seats on a Delta flight from New York LaGuardia to Palm Beach International Saturday, even though she had pre-booked her ticket and paid for extra leg room (she's six feet tall.)

Coulter – who has 1.6 million followers on Twitter – says that the flight attendant didn't offer an explanation for the seat swap.

She became even more infuriated when the person who took her seat was "some woman" and "not elderly, child, or sick."

Coulter went so far as to tweet a photo of the woman who took her spot.

Coulter's whole rant lasted about two hours, during which she also complained about the flight's WiFi, saying it didn't work, "probably to prevent passengers from tweeting from the plane about how they're being treated."

The tweets also allege that Delta didn't apologize to the Republican pundit or offer any form of compensation for making her change seats.

Delta responded three minutes after Coulter's last tweet, apologizing in a couple tweets signed by "HJB."

Coulter never tweeted to say where her new seat was on the plane or whether she still got the extra leg room she'd paid for.

But a Delta spokesman told Forbes the change was a pretty small one.

“It appears her new seat was in the same row, just not the exact seat she had selected,” the spokesman said Sunday morning.

"We are aware of the customer's comment, and reaching out directly to her to address the complaint," he added.

Delta’s relationship with Minnesota

Delta is based in Atlanta, but is a huge player at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport. MSP is considered one of the airline’s hubs, and it’s one of the biggest airlines there.

Delta has about 80,000 employees worldwide – about 8,500 of them in Minnesota, the state’s economics department says, making them one of the largest employers.
