Delta Airlines hit back at Conservative commentator Ann Coulter who launched a two-day Twitter tirade after she was booted out of a seat with extra leg room on a Delta flight.

Ann Coulter's reputation may have preceded her during a Delta flight from NY to Florida on Saturday.

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".

Coulter went ballistic on social media after she was moved from the aisle seat on a flight from NY to Palm Beach, Florida, to a window seat in the same exit row.

After some confusion, according to the airline, a flight attendant stepped in to ask the affected passengers to return to the seats on their respective tickets. Once she had boarded and was in the seat, a flight attendant approached and "ordered" her to take a different seat, "without explanation, compensation, or apology".

Coulter had alluded to Delta employees being rough, tweeting: ".@Delta employee questionnaire: "What is your ideal job: "Prison guard?

Despite this, Coulter has continued her screed against the airline on Twitter. Animal handler? Stasi policeman?

"We are sorry that the customer did not receive the seat she reserved and paid for". More importantly, we are disappointed that the customer has chosen to publicly attack our employees and other customers by posting derogatory and slanderous comments and photos in social media.

"Her actions are unnecessary and unacceptable", the statement added.

Initially, a Delta Airlines representative told the New York Daily News that the company was "reaching out to her directly to address the complaint".

"Delta expects mutual civility throughout the entire travel experience", the statement said. Following the flight, crew members reported that there were no problems or concerns escalated. She pointed fingers at the female passenger in the above photo, claiming that she had "waltz [ed] at the last min" and took her seat.
