    Or hope you get left off a flight because someone wants an empty seat next to them. It's typical though. Most people these days only think about themselves, and to hell with everyone else.

    That's exactly what I said. But then I said that it is still morally wrong.

    Why are airlines allowed to overbook?

    @cpicturetaker12 So you are saying it is okay to not give people the service they paid for.

    you sound like a democrats, you believe it is okay to steal. Do you support people that take the nerdy kids lunch money because they can.


    You just supported Bait and Switch.

    Unused as I am to regularly flying within the USA, I am having some difficulty understanding how this came about, and the reasons for the switch.

    First off, let us disabuse ourselves of the misconception that she paid for another seat. As I understand it, she paid a little extra for a seat in an aisle which offered a little more leg room, and even though she was allocated another seat with similar leg room - she was given a refund for the switch. I expect the airline had reasons for effecting the switch, but those were not made clear in the article concerned.

    Things operate a little differently in my world. As some of you may know, I fly between the UK and Australia roughly twice a year, but I use one of three carriers - British Airways, QANTAS, or Virgin (most often the latter as they are usually the cheapest), and I book my tickets and do my seat allocation via the computer (not smartphone, as I need to print tickets and boarding passes). This means my seat, once allocated cannot be changed and there is no double booking. I have been asked on QANTAS to swap seats with someone who wanted to sit with their family and that was no problem. Especially as, to my delight, I was given a seat in Business Class. But it was a very polite request, and no coercion or peremptory attitudes were involved.

    From my experience in the past, involving air travel to and from the USA, American passengers do not seem to exercise much airline discipline, inasmuch as they wander around the aircraft a lot, and make constant demands on the cabin crew. Lol, as one stewardess said to me on the flight to London "I love having you British as passengers, you are so undemanding and considerate - most Americans are ******* as paying passengers."

    I understood what she meant in respect of one man who was in my allocated seat when we boarded at JFK. When the cabin staff pointed out that was my seat, he simply said "Well can't the kid sit somewhere else - I want to talk with my buddy!" I sat in another seat to save the stewardess embarrassment - I was only 14 then, but he might have got an acerbic comment from me if it happened today.

    So, unless the airline politely requested, and Coulter agreed to move to another seat - she has some cause for dissatisfaction - irrespective of the terms and conditions of the transport agreement.

    She, on the other hand, took an entitled attitude, and made a mountain out of a molehill, whilst intruding on the privacy of others by means of her photos and tweets.

    There is room for improvement in the actions of both the airline and the aggrieved passenger.

    I think we all get that but it wasn't the young lady's fault either. Why shame her?

    I will ask? Who makes that decision? I assume not the flight attendants or flying crew. Are the ticket takers at check in decision makers or they directed from another level?

    I thought her behaving like someone shoved a cactus up her butt was an act. But she's apparently the same way in "real life."

    Seriously, this wouldn't be funny if Ann Coulter didn't make her living being a four-square ass.

    Back when nearly everyone else on the planet seemed outraged at United Airlines over the violent de-seating of a paying passenger, Ann Coulter, as she so often does, shared her own unique take. “Sorry about the dragging,” she wrote in April. “But convicted pill-mill doctor should be deported.” The bloodied passenger had a criminal history and immigrated from Vietnam, you see.

    But so much for Coulter’s nuanced take on air travel. On Saturday, she declared “the worst airline in America” to be not United, but Delta Air Lines — which allegedly committed the offense of de-seating Ann Coulter.

    Coulter didn’t just slam Delta for moving her from her “PRE-BOOKED seat” with extra leg room (to another seat in the same row, according to the airline). She also documented the experience in photos and tweet after tweet, which she shared with her 1.6 million followers, not to mention the wider spectrum of people fascinated by things Ann Coulter does.

    Coulter didn’t immediately reply to questions, including why she decided to photograph and publicize her co-flyer’s faces. “It appears her new seat was in the same row, just not the exact seat she had selected,” a Delta spokesman wrote to The Washington Post. “It was an exit row seat (has extra leg room),” he wrote. “She was moved from an aisle to a window. Same space, a few seats over.”

    Poor Ann, maybe thought the publicity would be good for her. Instead she is being mocked all over Twitter.
    Fantastic the bitch is getting her comeuppance.

    I will state uncategorically I can't stand her. Her and Michelle Malkin!

    Let's not forget that cross around her eck she started sporting awhile back. Same woman who was banging some other winger who happened to be married.

    If she had actually been bumped from a seat I would feel her pain. Not cool for airlines to do that.

    But taking it viral and trying the shame the women in her seat is beyond the pale - especially when they gave her another seat in the same row.
