The Daily News claims American Airlines recently booted a Michigan family off one of their flights because they had bad body odor.
Yossi Adler and his family boarded a plane at Miami International Airport before crew members had them removed. Yossi tells the paper; “All of a sudden, as soon as they took us off, they closed the gate and then they said, ‘Sorry, sir, some people complained you had body odor and we’re not letting you back on’. There’s no body odor that we have. There’s nothing wrong with us.”
Yossi’s wife, Jenny, says; “We stopped several people in the airport and, it’s embarrassing, but we asked them, ‘Do you think we smell?’ Because we just got kicked off a plane for smelling.”
American Airlines says; “The Adler family were asked to deplane last night after several passengers, along with our crew members, complained about their body odor. The family were provided hotel accommodations and meals, and rebooked on a flight to Detroit today.”
