Chris Evans Trolls Ann Coulter Over Delta Flight Claim

Read on: TheWrapTheWrap.

Ann Coulter’s claim about her experience with Delta just isn’t flying with Chris Evans.

“Captain America” star Evans took time out of his Monday to razz conservative commentator Coulter, after she claimed she had spent $10,000 worth of her time choosing the seat she was eventually moved from.

“It cost me $10,000 of my time to pre-select the seat I wanted, investigate type of plane & go back periodically to review seat options,” Coulter wrote on Sunday.

It took Evans a little while to hit Coulter with a zinger, but when he did, it was well-landed.

“I totally get it. It costs me 75k to brush my teeth,” Evans shot back. “I must pre-select a brush, investigate types of paste, and periodically spit bulls—.”

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

The commentator and best-selling author had tweeted a photo of the passenger who was seated in her pre-booked seat for an unexplained emergency and ripped the passenger in another tweet as “the dachshund-legged woman.”

“Hey @Delta,” Coulter also tweeted on Saturday. “You mind telling me why it was an ‘emergency’ to move someone else into the seat I had carefully chosen in advance and booked?”

“So glad I took time investigate the aircraft & PRE-BOOK a specific seat on @Delta, so some woman could waltz at the last min & take my seat,” she added.

Coulter’s Twitter tirade prompted Delta to take the commentator to task on Sunday, saying that her “insults about our other customers and employees are unacceptable and unnecessary.”

Delta Fires Back at Ann Coulter for ‘Unacceptable’ Insults to Passengers, Crew

Delta fired back at conservative pundit Ann Coulter on Sunday for what the airline called an “unacceptable and unnecessary” series of tweets after she was denied the seat she had pre-booked on a Saturday flight.

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

“Her new seat was in the same row, just not the exact seat she had selected,” a Delta spokesperson told TheWrap.

The commentator and best-selling author had tweeted a photo of the passenger who was seated in her pre-booked seat for an unexplained emergency and ripped the passenger in another tweet as “the dachshund-legged woman.”

The airline released a critical tweet to Coulter saying, “your insults about our other customers and employees are unacceptable and unnecessary.”

@AnnCoulter Additionally, your insults about our other customers and employees are unacceptable and unnecessary.

The six-foot-tall Coulter had booked an aisle seat for the extra legroom during the flight from New York to Palm Beach, Florida.

“Hey @Delta,” she tweeted on Saturday. “You mind telling me why it was an ‘emergency’ to move someone else into the seat I had carefully chosen in advance and booked?”

And then Coulter persisted by tweeting a photo of the woman even though she was not to blame for the seat reassignment.

Hey @Delta, you mind telling me why it was an “emergency” to move someone else into the seat I had carefully chosen in advance and booked?

But at least @Delta was nice @ it, summarily snatching my ticket from my hand & ordering me to move w/o explanation, compensation or apology

— Ann Coulter (@AnnCoulter) July 16, 2017

Hey @Delta, if it was so important for the dachshund-legged woman to take my seat, she should have BOOKED THE SEAT IN ADVANCE. Like I did.

Delta Removes Passenger After He Used Bathroom Before Takeoff (Videos)

Read on: TheWrapTheWrap.

A man was removed from a Delta flight last week after he used the bathroom while the plane awaited takeoff on the tarmac, according to local paper Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

Various passengers took videos of the incident in which Kima Hamilton was being asked to step off the plane by one flight attendant and a second employee on Flight 2035 from Atlanta to Milwaukee.

“I need more information sir. I haven’t done anything and I paid for this ticket and I actually have, I have to get home,” Hamilton told the first employee, captured on video. “I haven’t had an opportunity to explain, and I hope you understand where I’m at right now.”

The flight attendant can be heard continuously telling Hamilton to step off the plane so they can discuss the matter not in front of the other passengers. When Hamilton asked the attendant whether the plane was going to leave once he stepped off the plane, the employee responded, “I don’t know what’s going to happen.”

In a second conversation with another employee, Hamilton is told that the plane had to return because of his bathroom break, according to NBC Chicago, and that their conversation was “inconveniencing everyone.”

Hamilton explained he had to use the bathroom earlier but was told to wait because the plane would lose its place in line for takeoff. But a few minutes later, he could no longer hold it. According to NBC, witnesses said that plane was not moving while Hamilton was in the bathroom.

Hamilton said he had to get back to Milwaukee because he is an art teacher and was supposed to supervise students on a field trip.

Passengers then told TMJ4 that they soon were forced to disembark the plane. Everyone was able to re-board except for Hamilton, who had to find a different way home.

“Mr. Hamilton was never confrontational,” passenger Michael Rosalino said. “He was very polite. He only asked for clarification throughout.”

“Our flight crews are extensively trained to ensure the safety and security of all customers,” a spokesperson for Delta told TheWrap. “It is imperative that passengers comply with crew instructions during all phases of flight, especially at the critical points of takeoff and landing.”

Delta’s removal of Hamilton comes just a few weeks after United forcibly removed a passenger from an “overbooked” flight, leaving him bloody and disoriented. Since then, United has made 10 changes to improve customer service, including offering up to $10,000 to passengers for giving up their seats.

The increased compensation offer comes two weeks after Delta announced it would give up to $9,950 to travelers who agree to give up their seats on overbooked flights.

Here’s How Much Delta Will Pay to Avoid a Viral Video

Read on: TheWrapTheWrap.

Ka-ching: Hoping to avoid a United-like debacle, Delta is now offering almost $10,000 to customers willing to deplane without being forced off their flights by security guards.

According to an internal memo obtained Friday by The Associated Press, Delta has given its agents the green light to offer up to $2,000 ($1,200 more than the previous maximum). Supervisors are allowed to offer up to $9,950 (up from $1,350).

United would not disclose its current compensation limit to the AP.  A spokesperson said the company is still reviewing its incentive policies and will announce its decision by April 30.

Airlines routinely offer travel vouchers or cash to customers on overbooked flights. But Delta was able to convince more passengers to give up their seats than any other U.S. airline last year, according to the AP, simply by offering more cash.

Last weekend, 69-year-old David Dao, a doctor, was violently dragged off a United flight after refusing to give up his seat on an overbooked flight. The incident, captured on video, has become a PR nightmare for the airline, and Dao plans to sue.

Still… don’t expect to be handed a suitcase full of cash just because your Delta flight is overbooked. It’s likely supervisors won’t offer the maximum amount right off the bat. (But even paying out the nose for tickets once in a while wouldn’t be too much of a financial hit for the airline, considering Delta earned nearly $4.4 billion last year.)

An Associated Press data analysis shows that from 2015 to 2016, Delta paid an average of $1,118 in compensation for every passenger who was asked to give up a seat. Meanwhile Southwest paid $758, United $565, and American Airlines $554.

6 Delta Passengers Dispute YouTube Star Adam Saleh’s Story About Getting Kicked Off Flight

Read on: TheWrapTheWrap.

YouTube star Adam Saleh made headlines on Wednesday when he accused Delta of kicking him off a flight for speaking Arabic over the phone to his mother — but now, eyewitnesses are disputing his claims.

Anthony Ellis, a passenger on the flight, told the Washington Post that he was seated a row in front of Saleh and his friend Slim Albaher, and heard them shouting while one of them was filming people’s reactions.

“He was never any part on the phone — I would have heard the whole conversation,” Ellis said, adding that he speaks Arabic. “If someone’s being racist, I would stand up right away. In this day in age, you defend each other. It wasn’t like that. I mean, this guy was trying to antagonize people. I think because they made it into such a big scenario, [Saleh] then kind of panicked a little bit.”

Another passenger on the flight took to social media to dispute Saleh’s claims, posting a picture of his boarding pass as proof.

“The YouTube guy was trying to get his friend to shout something in Arabic which he did a total of 4 times,” he posted, adding that neither Saleh nor Albaher was on a phone call. “A couple of passengers after the second time said they were making themselves and their young children uncomfortable and could they shut up.”

Another passenger who identified his seat and row on the plane wrote on Facebook that another passenger stated “she saw this man pump his fists in the air and say something in another language. She knows it was not ‘allahu akbar’ and that he was doing in a joking manner … She got so agitated that a crew member had to ask her to calm down. After she saw him to [sic] this the 2nd time she called a flight attendant.”

The passenger also claimed that another traveler “heard someone saying ‘um del lum lakum.’ He heard this a few times and he stated that ‘the guy was shouting it so I had to turn around and see what it was about.’ ‘I could tell that his friend was telling him what to say and he would repeat it. He told him how to say it and say it louder and he was pumping his fists in the air.’”

Those accounts were corroborated secondhand by still another Facebook user, who posted that his boyfriend, seated “directly in front of them,” reported that “the entire thing was planned. [Saleh] wasn’t on the phone with his mom speaking Arabic. He and his friends were shouting in Arabic with their fists balled up in the air. They were removed from the plane for being loud and disruptive, then started filming claiming they were victims. These guys aren’t victims, they are social media whores.”

In a video posted online Wednesday morning, Saleh claimed that he and his friend were kicked off the flight after other passengers complained that he was making them uncomfortable by speaking in Arabic while on the phone with his mother.

“It seriously made me cry. I travel a lot, and I never in a million years knew I would experience something like this. I speak to my mom every flight I go on, right before I leave, and my mom only speaks Arabic,” Saleh said in an interview with CBS.

On Wednesday, Soledad O’Brien called into question Saleh’s story.

“Soooo. I have a good friend on this flight right now … apparently woman sitting near my friend tipped off flight attendants he was a youtube star known for pranks, “O’Brien tweeted Wednesday morning. “Also people on plane disputing call to mom.”

The YouTube star has a history of posting prank videos that are designed to look real. In October, it was revealed that his viral video of a NYPD officer stopping and frisking a pair of Muslim men for wearing Islamic garments was a hoax. And last week, Saleh was called out for posting a fake video in which he allegedly sneaked onto a flight in a suitcase.

In a follow-up statement regarding the event on Wednesday afternoon, Delta said Saleh “sought to disrupt the cabin with provocative behavior, including shouting” after taking multiple eyewitness statements upon landing.

The company continued: “This type of conduct is not welcome on any Delta flight.”

A representative for Saleh has not yet responded to TheWrap’s request for comment.
