Ann Coulter bashes Delta
Airlines in tweetstorm

The Hill, by Josh Delk

Original Article

Posted By:Lalo, 7/16/2017 10:06:55 PM

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. [Tweet] 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

Comments:
Ann and the President seem to have a similar ethic about being ´attacked´ -- punch back ten times harder.

Reminds me of that Seinfeld episode about the car reservation -- "you know how to take the reservation, you just don´t know how to hold the reservation." I guess we´re supposed to be thankful they don´t put us out on the wing.

Threaten them by saying "next time I´m taking a bus".

If that doesn´t work you can always scream:
"Do you know who I am??!!"

When I fly on Delta, it´s always Delta Comfort. Wish I´d seen Ann Coulter. She is editorially fearless.

Be that as it may, this little episode is ridiculous. Boring.

They probably knew that she is a conservative commentator and decided to screw over her by giving her previously assigned seat to someone else. They don´t make mistakes on seat assignments as they are all computerized these days. Coulter most likely flies commercial all the time, after making an evaluation of the situation she should probably take her business somewhere else.

Delta responded to her nastily because HER complaints hurt them. She is extra tall. She specifically booked it.
As a frequent flyer, she had every reason to be itritated.

I had a similar experience with another airline. I have severe health problems with my legs and booked an extra seat so I could move my legs to ease the pain. They moved me to a window seat which are smaller and the flight was so painful, I haven´t flown since and will never trust any airline again.

Air travel has become the science of cramming as many bodies as possible into a metal tube and getting them from Point A to Point B as quickly as possible to maximize corporate profits. Customer Service is not in the handbook.

Assuming everything in the article is factual, Ann played by the rules set by the airline. She paid for a specific seat, a choice given by the airline. If the personnel wanted to make a change they should have apprised Ann of the situation and offered her a comparable seat. The choice should have been hers, she paid for the privilege. If you make a policy, abide by it. I hate actions that become arbitrary; just a pet peeve.

I just flew round trip to Dallas on United and had no problem at all. I flew "basic economy" which is cheaper but doesn´t allow seat selection. I was given a window seat, but I prefer the aisle so I went to the desk at my gate and they changed me to an aisle seat.

I also love their new policy of making you pay if you want to take your roller bag on board and put it in the overhead bin. Now most people check their bags and only carry on a personal item. It makes boarding and de-boarding twice as fast and you don´t have to worry about someone dropping their roller bag on your head or slamming it into your knees.

Another talking head abused by a company that transports a billion passengers each year with over
100,000 hard working employees to move you safely from any two locations on the planet.
Let the billion passengers tell us what the airlines do correctly that matters most to them in their travels.
The airline industry is not the problem, it the uncivilized
passengers that become idiots in front of a camera or a iPhone.

2 hours of misery. When you pay extra for something, you fully expect to get that "extra". Hotel "guaranteed reservations" are supposed to absolutely guarantee you get that room, - they do not. Same with airline seats- read the fine print on your ticket. Most stuff like that is nothing but a legalized con game.

Pearls Before Swine" is a cartoon series done by an attorney. He recently whacked airlines pretty severely and it was funny. He also regularly makes fun of himself, his lack artistic skills, and his characters attack him for his bad puns.
I recommend his work to you.

Ann´s very tall, I´m sure the extra seat pitch helps with her long legs a whole lot for comfort. I doubt that the $30 had anything to do with it, it was comfort and the fact that she had a "confirmed reservation" which apparently doesn´t count for much.

OTOH, personally attacking the flight attendant....not cool. I have met and like Ann, but she does go over the top a lot.

Her books are a treasure trove, though. Anyone who hasn´t read Treason:Liberal Treachery .... is missing a whole lot of the underlying truths of how the Democrats have been working with the soviets for many decades to destroy the US.

the airline failed to fulfill its contract, mocked ann, told her she was upset about her $30 instead of legroom, ignored her when she asked why the seat was being reasssigned and generally acted like an ass. they owe her a full refundd on that flight and need to pray she doesn´t title her next book after them and their rude jackassery.

the problem was started by them and they failed to ameliorate it.

We go to Europe every year on Delta/SkyTeam and have had good results. Always used them for business overseas, too. An occasional bobble, but not often.

In the USA, ALWAYS Southwest!, 100%. A friend that I have know since he was a teen is a SW pilot and he is the perfect poster guy for them, big smile, great person, wonderful, friendly attitude, and a superb pilot.

Martin Shkreli just can’t help himself. The notorious “pharma bro” who was recently convicted on three counts of fraud in connection with hedge funds, was released on $5 million bail, but his behavior since then has led to the Justice Department pushing for him to be locked up ASAP. Earlier this week, Shkreli said in Facebook post (which he has since deleted), “On HRC’s book tour, try to grab a hair from her,” adding “Will pay $5,000 per hair obtained from Hillary Clinton.” He later claimed it was a form of satire, but it was enough for the DOJ to

Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh has taken a ton of heat over the past few days for essentially claiming that the warnings over Hurricane Irma — a massive Category 5 storm heading right for Florida — were related to a broader “deep state” conspiracy to promote climate change, force people to buy bottled water and increase the news media’s ratings. During his radio program yesterday, Limbaugh remained defiant, claiming that media accusations that he was placing people in danger by spreading conspiracy theories were completely untrue. And yet, at the same time, he doubled down on what he previously had said,

Suddenly, it seems like Sen. Charles Schumer (N.Y.) and Rep. Nancy Pelosi (Calif.) are driving the agenda in Congress. The deal President Trump struck with the two Democrats over the objection of the majority leaders in his own party has at least temporarily upended the balance of power in Washington, emboldening Democrats who now see space to work with Trump on immigration and spending. It’s a dramatic shift from Trump’s first seven months in office, when the president worked almost exclusively with Republicans and Democrats were largely an afterthought. But

All planned deployment of the U.S. missile defense system THAAD to South Korea is complete, 14 months after the United States and South Korea publicly announced the decision in July 2016. The deployment of four additional launchers to Seongju, central South Korea, prompted Chinese state media to issue a strong condemnation that likened THAAD to a "malignant tumor" that was as provocative as "North Korea´s nuclear weapons." South Korean Defense Minister Song Young-moo said Thursday the four launchers were all delivered to the designated site, 40 days after Seoul had agreed to place more missile defense in the area following

On this issue, his actions have been more effective than those of past presidents. So far, the assumption that Trump is bungling or exacerbating the crisis with North Korea isn’t justified. Ever since he came down the escalator at Trump Tower that fateful day in June 2015, President Trump’s critics have worried that his anger-management and impulse-control issues would be exposed in an international crisis. Everything we’ve learned about him tells us that he is temperamentally unsuited to diplomacy or putting forward the image of quiet strength and confidence that is synonymous with traditional ideas about good leadership.

Let us define our terms: What is an Act of War? There are two types of Acts of War: de jure, which means as a matter of law and de facto, which means as a matter of fact. Unless a nation literally announces (de jure) to the world community, as in a declaration of war, that it committed an attack on the personnel and/or territory of another nation it comes down to a matter of fact (de facto) as assumed by the nation being attacked. These are the established facts: since late 2016

Sen.

Lindsey Graham (S.C) and Bill Cassidy (La.). McCain´s announcement leaves GOP leadership with no room for error.

If NFL fans continue to turn away from football, the TV networks could lose as much as $200 million in earnings, according to a new report. After ratings for Week Two crashed, adding to the angst already felt by a poor showing in Week 1, industry insiders and analysts are sounding the alarm. A new report claims that CBS, ESPN, Fox and NBC could take a $200 million hit to their estimated $2.5 billion in NFL advertising earnings if fans continue to turn off the TV, the The Hollywood Reporter noted recently.

ABC has greenlit a new sitcom tentatively titled "Sanctuary Family" about an undocumented family living in the U.S. The network says the show will follow the pandemonium that unfolds when a married couple allows their undocumented nanny and her family to live with them. The guests put a strain on the marriage of the host family but they eventually learn that “the differences both families have aren’t as significant as their similarities,” according to the description provided by ABC. Undocumented immigrants are foreign-born people who don’t have a legal right to be or remain in the United States and the

Late-night host Jimmy Kimmel used his opening monologue Thursday to once again lambast supporters of the Graham-Cassidy health care bill -- and at one point called a Republican senator from Louisiana an "inbred." The host of ABC´s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” has emerged as a strong celebrity advocate for universal health care since his infant son had to undergo open-heart surgery in April. Kimmel made an announcement about his son during a memorable monologue at the time and has taken up the cause ever since. Part of his goal is for every child in the U.S. to have the same access to

Michelle Obama said in a speech Thursday that the White House is currently being led by fear, comparing President Trump´s administration with her husband and former President Obama´s administration. (Snip) “It isn’t just us first,” she said, referring to Trump´s "America first" policies. “We live in a big country and a big world," she said. "You can’t just want to help someone in a hurricane and not make sure they can go to the doctor when they’re sick.” Trump reiterated his "America first" doctrine in a speech to the United Nations General Assembly this week, emphasizing that America would put

The San Francisco 49ers Thursday night game against the Los Angeles Rams kicked off in front of a nearly empty stadium. Los Angeles Times reporter Lindsey Thiry tweeted a photo at the time of kickoff, which showed thousands of open seats. In fact, most sections in the photo have more empty seats than fans. (Tweet/Photo/Video) ESPN’s Darren Rovell reported that 63,500 tickets had been sold for the game, but of course, simply selling a ticket doesn’t mean the buyer will actually show up to the game. It’s hard to believe there are more than 30,000 people in the stadium, judging

Democratic Rep. John Lewis said Thursday he sometimes feels like “taking a bullwhip” to people in order to make them care about civil rights. “It doesn’t matter whether they’re black, or white, Latino, Asian-American or Native American. When you see something that’s not right, not fair, not just, you have an obligation to do something, to say something. They’re just too darn quiet. I really wanna use some other words sometimes,” Lewis told the audience of the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation Town Hall on Civil Rights in Washington, D.C. “I believe in the philosophy and the discipline of nonviolence, but sometimes

A team of four current and former NFL players is lobbying commissioner Roger Goodell to engage the league in fighting for the cause of social justice, even asking him to formally designate November as activism awareness month. Current players Michael Bennett (Seattle Seahawks), Torrey Smith (Philadelphia Eagles), and Malcolm Jenkins (Philadelphia Eagles), along with former player Anquan Boldin, sent Goodell and another executive a 2,800-word memorandum in August requesting the league invest significant resources in the cause. The memo, available in full here, is specific and thoughtful, but its requests would almost certainly prove divisive among fans, many of whom are
