Michigan couple and their 19-month-old daughter were removed from an American Airlines flight after their airline told them that other passengers and crew members complained about the smell of their body. Jenny headed for a holiday home in Miami on Wednesday evening when they were told they had an emergency and they had to leave the plane. Adler said he and his wife were worried there might have been an incident involving one of them. Later, he said, when he and his wife left the plane and the airline told them they had been removed because of a stench, they were "humiliated," "disappointed," and left to wonder about the real reason.
Obviously there was a reason, "said Adler, a Jew, in a telephone interview Friday with the Washington Post." But I think it's an anti-Semitic reason. "
" Even if it was not " , he added, "then they were anti-Semites."
American Airlines said in a statement that Adler had asked to come out after "numerous passengers, along with our crew members, complained about the smell of Mr. Adler Miami airport staff members were concerned about the comfort of our other passengers due to the smell, provided hotel accommodation and food and pressed them a flight to Detroit on Thursday morning
The airline said its officers did not know about Adler's religion, it did not work, so he had to pay for his pocket, the airline said it should not be, but that he will look into the matter and ensure that these costs are recovered. "
Anyway, Adler said, if the airline was concerned about the smell of his body, he must have given him clean clothes to wear. Instead, he said, he had to wear the same clothes on the next morning as he did not have his belongings.
The video showed that Adler approached the ticket counter on Wednesday evening complaining that the airline had removed them from the plane. and then sent their belongings to Detroit.
"I'm trying to stay calm here," Josie Adler told an official. "But there are two Jews on the plane, and now they're smashing us for smell. Seriously? No one here thinks I have a smell.
"I have to get on the plane tonight. I have eight kids at home. "
At one point, after Adler asked airline workers to explain the move, one of them asked," Did you tell me for religious reasons you did not bathe? "I'm calling every day!" Adler replied quickly, "I said you kicked me out for religious reasons."
But some people who said they were also flight passengers said it was not a religion. 1
Another woman who claimed to have been on the flight had gone to Twitter "The smell was so bad that I could not go through a 2.5 hour flight," she said.
Asked about this claim, Adler said in a text aobshtenie of the Post that "" BO "is a fairy tale and a cover for condemning discrimination out of me and so insensitive My family and I received from the staff of AA. My attorneys will prove that the request of the BO is absolutely meaningless. "
Adler told Post that it was lit on Wednesday morning and said that if there was a legitimate problem with body odor, the officers responsible responsibly in the service sphere" went over and beyond "had to "Not once in my life someone said that it smells," he told The Post. Last year an African woman was dressed in a United Airlines flight after the traveler complained that she had a "sharp" smell. The woman sues for racial discrimination. .
