New Delhi [India], July 17 (ANI): 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." <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">If <a href="https://twitter.com/Delta">@Delta</a> employees were not so HONORABLE & TRUSTWORTHY, I would have said this is an outright lie.

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. <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">If you thought it was about $30, <a href="https://twitter.com/Delta">@Delta</a>, why didn&#39;t you give this woman $30 and let me stay in my PRE-BOOKED, ASSIGNED seat? <a href="https://t.co/sR1g8tuRWX">pic.twitter.com/sR1g8tuRWX</a></p>&mdash; Ann Coulter (@AnnCoulter) <a href="https://twitter.com/AnnCoulter/status/886828096887848960">July 17, 2017</a></blockquote> <script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>(ANI)
