Delta added that it had inadvertently moved Coulter while boarding, to another seat next to a window in the same row, when trying to accommodate a number of other passengers with special requests for seating.

Delta responded via Twitter on Sunday, apologizing for Coulter not receiving her pre-booked seat she paid for and offering a refund. According to the airline, all passengers were asked to move to the seats noted on their tickets, and customers complied without incident.

Delta said as well that its social media and customer care teams had tried to reach out to the political analyst on several occasions to make an apology, but had received no feedback from her until late Sunday night.

Delta appeared to have deleted its tweets after they were posted on Sunday afternoon, but not before they were shared thousands of times.
