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.

A headless torso found in waters off Denmark has been identified as missing Swedish journalist Kim Wall, Danish police say. There was a "DNA match between [the] torso and Kim Wall", Copenhagen police said on Twitter. Ms Wall was last seen alive on 10 August as she departed on a submarine trip with inventor Peter Madsen. The submarine sank hours after the search for Ms Wall began. Mr Madsen was charged with negligent manslaughter. He initially said he had dropped her off safely near Copenhagen, but has since said she died in an accident and that he had "buried" her at sea.

For more than 400 years, since the time of the Mughal emperor Jahangir, the Indian city of Kannauj has been distilling flowers to make perfume. But the industry is in decline. Synthetic perfumes are pushing the distilleries towards closure - and these exquisite scents may soon be lost forever. visitor to Kannauj could easily miss the signs of what was once the city’s main industry. But among the cars, lorries and street vendors, just occasionally a cart passes by laden with flower baskets, and turns through a large gate into the stone-paved alleyways of the old city.

The relationship between President Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is so fractured the pair haven’t spoken in weeks, a new report said Tuesday.

The feud has only deepened since the Senate was unable to repeal Obamacare, and the president’s incendiary comments after the unrest in Charlottesville only made things worse, the paper reported. The rift, marked by Trump’s repeated attacks on the majority leader on Twitter and an angry phone call between the two that deteriorated into cursing, comes at

The comments are included in her new book, “What Happened,” which she called an attempt to “pull back the curtain” on her losing bid for the presidency. Some of the moments during the campaign, she said, “baffled” her. The book comes out Sept. 12, but audio excerpts, read by Clinton herself, were played on MSNBC on Wednesday morning.

Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner are among a set of White House aides pushing President Trump to allow illegal immigrants brought to the U.S. as children to stay, in an effort to get Democrats to fund the president´s border wall. McClatchy reported that the group of White House officials have suggested using so-called ´Dreamers´ as a bargaining chip, in order to check off some of the president´s campaign promises on immigration, including the wall, additional detention facilities, an E-verify system for employers and cuts to legal immigration.

As the face of CNN, Anderson Cooper makes a very good living as wealthy, privileged white man casting judgments of affiliation upon his political enemies. This includes taking a handful of idiotic white supremacists and declaring they represent millions of Republicans/conservatives, pro-America, Trump supporters, etc. And yet Mr. Cooper himself has a much closer affiliation to slavery than he likely wants his leftist viewers to know. As a descendant of the Vanderbilt family, one of the wealthiest “old money” families in American history, Cooper is a direct descendant of big time slave owners. Cooper’s great-great grandfather, Cornelius Vanderbilt, owned several plantations,

The relationship between President Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is so fractured the pair haven’t spoken in weeks, a new report said Tuesday. And McConnell has privately said he doesn’t know if Trump can even salvage his presidency, The New York Times reported. The feud has only deepened since the Senate was unable to repeal Obamacare, and the president’s incendiary comments after the unrest in Charlottesville only made things worse, the paper reported.

Trump’s speech, in which he pledged to increase the number of troops in the 16-year-war, was the first since the departure of Chief Strategist Steve Bannon and confirmed the fears of many on the right that without a strong nationalist voice in the West Wing, the President would revert to the same old fare that Americans had

Students at Howard University, a top-rated historically black college in Washington D.C., took to social media to express their anger over a group of white high school girls wearing pro-Trump clothing who visited the campus on Saturday. Some tweets referring to their visit also suggested the white high school girls should be beaten up. One of the high school guests, in a social media post of her own, said they were simply visiting the school’s cafeteria to get food as part of a larger tour of the nation’s capital, and faced a barrage of insults and aggressive acts, including having

ROCKLIN, Calif. — The Rocklin Academy school board is facing tough questions from parents concerned over a controversial incident involving transgender discussions inside a kindergarten class, CBS Sacramento reports. "These parents feel betrayed by the school district that they were not notified," said Karen England with the Capitol Resource Institute. (Snip) "The kindergartners came home very confused, about whether or not you can pick your gender, whether or not they really were a boy or a girl," said England. Parents say besides the books, the student at some point during class also changed clothes and was revealed as her true
