Coulter sparks twitter row over seat in Delta Airlines

ANI  |  New Delhi [India] 

Author Ann Coulter sparked a row on Twitter after she said the airline moved her from a pre-booked, "extra room" seat and gave it to another woman.

Coulter bawled out against the company on Twitter, calling Delta the "worst airline in America".

According to her, they had given her seat to a person who was neither old, nor a child, nor sick, nor an "air marshall or a tall person."

Coulter was flying to the West Palm Beach, Florida, from New York's LaGuardia airport when she was reassigned from an aisle to a window seat on the same exit row with extra leg room.

According to a Delta spokesperson, there was no confusion during the flight as all the passengers had complied and the flight took off on time. It said it only learned of Coulter's complaints after she began tweeting about it on July 15, following the flight's arrival.

On Sunday evening, Delta responded to Coulter on Twitter and said it will refund the $30 she had paid for the preferred seat.
