American Airlines kicks family off flight because passengers complained of body odor

American Airlines kicked a Detroit family off of their return flight from Miami International Airport this week because passengers and crew complained of the father's body odor.

Yossi Adler, his wife and their 19-month-old were trying to catch a flight back home Wednesday after taking a vacation in Florida when they were turfed from the flight.

A United States couple have been thrown off a plane after fellow passengers complained about their body odour.

"They take me off and say we've gotten complaints about you having body odor and we have to take you off the plane", he said. "There's nothing wrong with us", he added. They said they're hopeful they can find their luggage when they get there.

The family said the airliner told them they could collect their luggage, but the flight left with their stuff.

The person said, "Our team members took care of the family by providing overnight accommodations and meals and rebooking them for the next available flight".

The Adlers were rebooked for a flight home to Detroit on Thursday.

"We stopped several people in the airport and, it's embarrassing, but we asked them, 'Do you think we smell?"

Shortly after, an airline employee replied, "Now you told me for religious reasons you don't shower, is that what you said?"


"There's a religious reason for some reason that they're kicking me off the plane".

"As I go to the gate...they are all holding their nose, using paper to blow around their nose, you know pretending it smells", the man said.

The passenger said he recorded the encounter and alleged that American Airlines staff removed his family from the plane because they're Jewish.

He also cast doubt on the airline's statement, saying that no crew members ever told the family which one of them smelled or if the bad "odor" emitted from all the family members.

The crew booted the family after passengers complained about body odor, a Miami ABC affiliate reported.

The family successfully flew back to Detroit Thursday.

"I'm very frustrated", Yossi told the station.

"I shower every day", Adler said. He thought we don't take showers.
