Southfield man kicked off American flight for body odor

American Airlines removed a family from a plane on Wednesday after passengers and crew members complained one of the family members smelled

Yossi Adler and his wife Jennie, along with their 19-month-old daughter were flying from Miami to Detroit Wednesday night and had boarded the flight with every intention of making the trip as planned, NBC News reported Thursday. "There's nothing wrong with us", he added.

The Adlers say they were told their luggage would be taken off the plane, but that did not happen, leaving them with only the clothes on their back.

"The Adler family were asked to deplane last night after several passengers, along with our crew members, complained about their body odor", American Airlines said in a statement.

Adler was then told other people had complained about his family's body odor, and that his family would have to leave.

At one point, after Adler asked airline workers for an explanation for the removal, one of them asked him, "You told me for religious reasons you don't shower?"

Adler says things only got worse when he and his family got to the gate to set up a different flight.

Maurizio Sarri says slamming Chelsea’s players was not a risky move
I thought we had managed to overcome this issue. "Hazard can play the false nine role but he doesn't offer you as much". We are a team that should be playing one or two touches, instead at some stages we were playing with seven or eight.

Airline officials also told them that their luggage would be taken off the plane, but the couple said it never happened.

On Wednesday night, a MI family - Jennie and Yossi Adler, along with their 19-month-old daughter - were escorted from their American Airlines flight from Miami to Detroit after some passengers made complaints about their body odour. "I said: 'Excuse me?" "But there's two Jewish people on the plane, and now they're kicking us off because of odor".

"They [had] our auto seat, stroller, everything", Jennie explained. The family also rebooked their flight on Thursday. "Our team members took care of the family by providing overnight accommodations and meals and rebooking them for the next available flight".

Annoyances on flights aren't new, but this sparks a bigger debate: At what level of inconvenience do airlines throw people off flights if they aren't a danger to the rest of the passengers?

A Detroit couple and their infant daughter were kicked off an American Airlines flight from Miami this week. But he feels employees of American Airlines were very disrespectful.

"Multiple passengers, along with our crew members, complained about Mr. Adler's body odor", the airline said in a statement.
