American Airlines kicked a Jewish family from MI off a flight Wednesday after passengers and crew members complained that the family smelled bad.

Yossi and Jennie Adler said they were forced off a flight from Miami to Detroit on Wednesday because passengers said they smelled bad. "Because we just got kicked off a plane for smelling", Jennie Adler told WPLG Local 10 in Miami.

"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.

Yossi told WPLG-TV, however, that he and his family have no body odor of which to speak. There's nothing wrong with us'.

Adler also said that the plane flew off with their luggage.

The Adlers also told the station that their luggage wasn't removed from the flight, leaving them without a auto seat, stroller or extra clothing for the night.

The airline said that it accommodated the family by booking them in a hotel for the night, and gave them meal vouchers. "They have been rebooked on a flight Thursday".

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

In the footage, Adler can be heard saying: "There's a religious reason for some reason that they're kicking me off the plane".

Past year a Transavia Airlines worldwide flight made an emergency landing because passengers complained of a man's body odor.

"I'm trying to stay calm here", Yossi Adler told an employee. "Our Miami airport team members were concerned about the comfort of our other passengers due to the odor", American Airlines told The Daily Caller News Foundation in an email Friday.

Adler believes there was a different reason as to why he and his family got kicked off the plane, although he did not elaborate.

"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 couple has since gotten a flight back home and said they hoped to find their belongings once in Detroit.

"I shower every day", Adler said.
