A Michigan couple Yossi Adler and his wife, Jennie along with their 19-month-old daughter were kicked off from an American Airlines flight, due to body odor, as other passengers and crew members had complained about body odor. As per reports the couple was traveling to home from a vacation in Miami, when they were told there was an emergency and they needed to exit the plane.
While talking about the incident Adler said he and his wife stepped off the plane and the airline told them that they had been removed because of a stench, they were “humiliated,” “frustrated” and left wondering about the real reason. “Obviously, there was a reason,” Adler, who is Jewish, said in a phone interview Friday with The Washington Post. “But I think it was an anti-Semitic reason.” “Even if it wasn’t,” he added, “they were anti-Semitic afterward.”
American Airlines said in a statement that “multiple passengers, along with our crew members, complained about Mr. Adler’s body odor. Our Miami airport team members were concerned about the comfort of our other passengers due to the odor. Our team members took care of the family and provided hotel accommodations and meals, and rebooked them on a flight to Detroit Thursday morning.”
