An American Airlines representative tells Yahoo Lifestyle: “They were asked to deplane after multiple passengers, along with our crew members and Miami airport team, were concerned about the comfort of our other passengers due to the odor. Our team members took care of the family by providing overnight accommodations and meals and rebooking them for the next available flight.”
The spokesperson confirms the family members were separated from their suitcases, adding, “Their luggage flew on the original flight to Detroit last night and was waiting for them upon arrival this morning.”
On Thursday, the Adlers self-consciously boarded their rescheduled flight. “We stopped several people in the airport and, it’s embarrassing, but we asked them, ‘Do you think we smell? Because we just got kicked off a plane for smelling,’” Jennie told WPLG.
“I’m very frustrated,” Yossi told WPLG. “I want them to own up to what really happened and to tell me the truth. What was it?”
