A MI couple and their 19-month-old daughter were removed from an American Airlines flight after the airline told them that other passengers and crew members had complained about their body odor.

Yossi and Jennie Adler, as well as their 19-month-old daughter, were heading home from Miami International Airport when an airline agent escorted them off the plane. "Because we just got kicked off a plane for smelling, '" Jennie told WPLG.

"They said there were people on the plane complaining you have BO, our crew members smelled it and our pilots smelled it and the pilots said we can't let you fly on this plane because the BO is too bad", said Yehuda Adler.

"There's no body odor that we have", Yossi Adler told the station Thursday at Miami International Airport. There's nothing wrong with us'.

The family was told American Airlines would remove their luggage from their plane, but they did not, Adler said.

"The family were provided hotel accommodations and meals, and re-booked on a flight to Detroit today", it added.

The Adlers boarded another flight and this time, they went around asking people about their odor. He reported that a flight attendant told the family some people had complained about their body odor, and they were not eligible to return to the flight.

An American Airlines employee can be heard asking Adler, "Now you told me for religious reasons you don't shower, is that what you said?" "I want them to own up to what really happened and to tell me the truth", Adler said.




- A Southfield man is furious with American Airlines after being kicked off a flight with his family for body odor.

"I'm very frustrated", Yossi told WPLG.

A USA family say they have been unfairly kicked off a plane after complaints from fellow passengers about their "body odour".

Another woman who claims to have been on the flight took to Twitter to back up American Airline's claim.

"Our Miami airport team members were concerned about the comfort of our other passengers due to the odor", said Alexis Aran Coello, American Airlines corporate communications manager. "I said you kicked me off because of religious reasons", Adler fired back.

"I shower every day!"

They think it was less about their hygiene and more about them being Jewish. He thought we don't take showers.
