Ann Coulter isn’t done with Delta Air Lines, despite a $30 refund credited to her after a seat mix-up on a recent flight.
Coulter on Saturday excoriated the airline for unceremoniously switching up her pre-booked “extra room” seat on the plane, which she claims cost her an additional $30, and four days later, Coulter is still managing to stir up controversy about what the conservative author and speaker now says was a nefarious plot to inconvenience her.
Tuesday saw Coulter share a text message conversation from who she claimed was a Delta flight attendant, and noted that she was moved for “political” reasons.
Coulter captioned the screenshot on Twitter with, “BEWARE OF @DELTA REPUBLICANS. Texts from a flight attendant: It was political. @Delta still won’t give a reason.”
The text thread between what she alleged to be two Delta employees read:
“Someone at the desk saw Ann’s name and picked it on purpose? Is there a randomizer when it comes to these situations?”
The other purported employee answered, “No, someone noticed her, and just wanted to be a jerk amb [sic] make her life miserable.”
“That’s what I figured,” the first alleged employee responded.
The second added, “Yeah, I said that on several secret FB groups of [XXX Airline] employees, and when I defended her, we went back & forth, and at the end, they acknowledged that it was a Delta employee who targeted Ann on purpose.”
Earlier in the day, Coulter doubled down on the previous day’s remarks and said, “After all those snarky @Delta tweets, it’s more likely they had a reason — and it was a bad one. @Delta still not saying.”
Coulter on Monday claimed that the airline took her seat without so much as an explanation.
For their part, Delta responded to Coulter’s very public cries against Delta, including photos she shared featuring Delta employees and passengers.
Delta, on Twitter, said, “We’re sorry you did not receive the preferred seat you paid for and will refund your $30. Additionally, your insults about our other customers and employees are unacceptable and unnecessary.”
