This story has been updated to say that Coulter was seated in an exit row. She was moved to another seat in the same exit row.
Conservative TV personality and author Ann Coulter launched a series of angry tweets Saturday after she was asked to change seats on a Delta flight – even though the change was a small one.
“Her new seat was in the same row, just not the exact seat she had selected,” a Delta spokesman said Sunday. Coulter was moved from an aisle seat to a window seat in the same row, an exit row, he said.
“We are aware of the customer’s comment, and reaching out directly to her to address the complaint,” the spokesman said.
Coulter paid extra to book an exit row seat, which comes with more legroom. Coulter said in her tweets that she booked an “extra room seat,” and that a flight attendant asked her to move.
Coulter is 55 and six feet tall, so the extra legroom would be worth paying for. She was booked on Delta Flight 2852 from New York LaGuardia to Palm Beach International. It departed at 2:50 p.m. and arrived at 5:40 p.m. Coulter apparently began tweeting once the aircraft landed.
“Why are you taking me out of the extra room seat I specifically booked, @Delta?’” Coulter tweeted. “‘Flight attendant: ‘I don’t know.
“Just when you think it’s safe to fly them again, the worst airline in America is STILL: @Delta,” she tweeted.
She also tweeted a photo of the passenger who was given her seat.
