Ann Coulter bashes Delta Airlines in tweetstorm

Ann Coulter's series of tweets targeting Delta Airlines stretched into a second day on Sunday after the conservative author said she lost a prebooked "extra-room" seat on a flight. 

"The worst airline in America" she said in a tweet Saturday night.

"Just when you think it's safe to fly them again, the worst airline in America is STILL: @Delta," she added.

Coulter said a flight attendant responded "I don't know" when asked why the "extra-room seat I specifically booked" was given to another customer.

Coulter then took a picture of the woman who was given the seat, and said she was "not an air marshal or tall person."

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."

"Suckiest @Delta moved me from my PRE-BOOKED SEAT & gave it to some woman, not elderly, child, or sick. I have pictures so don’t lie, @Delta!"

Among her tweets on Sunday morning, Coulter said Delta’s motto was: "How can we make your flight more uncomfortable?"

The airline responded to the tweets Sunday evening, saying it would refund her $30. 

Delta added in a second tweet that Coulter's "insults about our other customers and employees are unacceptable and unnecessary." 

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