Dr. David Dao

Just a few short months ago, United Airlines faced one of the worst public relations nightmares of recent memory, and the airline industry as a whole was criticized for its seating policies and the cost and inconvenience passed on to customers. That case, of course, involved Dr. David Dao, who was dragged from his seat after refusing to comply with United and security at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport. He was left bloodied and bruised, his cries of refusal fully captured on a viral Twitter video.

Fast-forward to this past weekend. Right-wing columnist Ann Coulter attacked Delta Air Lines in a tweet storm for moving her from a seat with extra legroom. She expressed outrage and evidently expected sympathy similar to what the Kentucky-based Dao received.

. . .

Coulter referred to a story that said Dao had his medical license suspended for drug abuse. Responders to the tweet largely thought she may have gone too far.

Dao’s incident involved violence, and even if the airline technically had the right to switch his seat at the time, it's hard to say he deserved his treatment. Meanwhile, Coulter employed her 1.61 million-follower Twitter account to call out Delta, its employees and even the passenger who ended up in her original seat.

6. Actually I think it would have been funnier had Delta transferred Ms. Coulter TO United.

She was flying on Delta, not United. Flying should never be a drag, no matter who you are.

8. Ann hasn't been in the news much lately.

Her star is waning. She had to do something to get attention.

I hope this story dies soon. But let her hear and see some of the ridicule first.
