A Michigan couple and their 19-month-old daughter were removed from an American Airlines flight after the airline informed them that other passengers and crew were complaining about their body odor.
Yossi Adler said he and his wife Jennie drove home from a holiday in Miami Wednesday evening when they were told there was an emergency and they had to leave the plane.
The couple, both 37, had eight more children in Southfield, Michigan. Adler said he and his wife were worried that one of them might have had an incident. Later, he said, when he and his wife got off the plane and the airline told them they had been taken away for a stench, they were "humiliated", "frustrated" and wondering why.
Obviously, there was a reason, "the Jewish Eagle said Friday in a telephone interview with The Washington Post." But I think it was an anti-Semitic reason. "
" Even if not, "he added," later they were anti-Semitic. "
American Airlines said in a statement that the Eagles were asking about the plane's departure" Several passengers complained to our crew members about the body odor of Mr. Adler. Our team members at Miami Airport were worried about the comfort of our other passengers due to the smell. Our team members looked after the family and the family, provided hotel accommodations and meals, and booked them for a flight to Detroit on Thursday morning.
The airline said its employees did not know about Adler's religion.
Adler said the coupons American Airlines gave him for food and lodging did not work, so he had to pay out of pocket, the airline said "That should not have been the case, but she'll deal with the matter and make sure that such expenses are reimbursed."
In any case, Adler had said, if the airline had been so worried about his body odor, she should have Instead, he said, he had to wear the same clothes the next morning because he did not have his belongings.
The video showed that the Eagles were approaching a ticket counter on Wednesday, and themselves complained that the airline had removed her from the plane, and then sent her belongings to Detroit.
"I'm trying You do not have to worry, "Yossi Adler told an employee. "But there are two Jewish people on the plane, and now they are throwing us out of smell ̵
"I have to board a plane tonight, I have eight children at home."
After Adler had asked the airline workers for an explanation of the distance, one of them asked him, "They told me religious reasons that you do not take a shower? "
" I shower every day! "Adler replied quickly," I said you rejected me for religious reasons. "
But some people who said they were also passengers said it was not about religion.
A person who spoke to the Washington Post under the aegis of anonymity said that he and his girlfriend were also on the plane and in fact a stink.
Another woman claiming to have been on the flight took Twitter on the return journey "The smell was so bad, I do not think I could have gotten through the 2.5-hour flight," she said.
Asked about this claim, Adler sent a message to the post office: "The" BO "is a fairy tale and a cover for the reprehensible discrimination that I and the insensitive child have before me. I and my family of AA- My lawyers will prove that BO's claim is downright nonsense. "
Adler told The Post that he showered Wednesday morning.
Adler described the experience as a "terrible" ordeal and explained that airline employees were walking around the airport. He held his nose and fanned out his faces. He said that if there had been a legitimate problem with body odor, the employees who responsibly went beyond the service in the service industry should have helped him.
Somebody said I smell in my life, "he told The Post.
