I once made the mistake of flying AirFrance JFK-CDG and yet I survived. Ďnuff said.
reminds me of BOM-JFK

A few years ago I was stuck in Y on AZ on my way back from TLV, and had a bochur sitting next to me. At some point he took off his shoes, and the stench was unbearable. I tried to cope for a few minutes, but then gave up and politely asked him to put on his shoes. I honestly can't understand how he could bear the odor himself.
That was me

ETA: Iím joking. I never flew Y on AZ.

it sounds crazy. Is it possible that the baby needed a diaper change?

I don't think 'body odor' refers to a diaper change.

SUE? they should be sued..if they really smelled and were kicked off the flight for bad odor, why should american airlines have bared the cost to put them up....  It seems like multiple people complained and the staff of AA confirmed it..Wasnt like 1 person said it

Indeed. Which is why I was really wondering what happened while they were on board. Something doesn't add up in this story.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Dont want to get it off topic but Its time to bring some awareness to this issue.
You can find dirty people that dont shower in all religions and sectors, but there are too many of them in our ultra orthodox community
Not trying to be a self hating jew, but it kind of angers me why so many think that using deodorant or going in shower on a daily basis is against our values.
I was once in a Mikvah of a specific community that stinking is the norm and I literally almost threw up and never stepped foot again.

Sadly I agree, we discussed body odors in another friend. It's a chillul hashem for a yid to smell

I wonder if it was foot odor. It wasn't like the guy talking to them was saying you guys smell.

But it's an interesting thought, I was just on a plane where the woman sitting next to my wife had terrible BO and was flatulating the entire flight. It was a red-eye and was terrible. I guess I was too polite to say anything.

People like to say "there's 2 sides to every story". THATS NOT TRUE! Most stories have two sides but not all. I know this couple personally, they are very normal people. I highly, highly doubt they really smelled. This is AAWFUL!

wether they truelly smelled or not isnít really the issue here. It was extremely embarrassing for them and their luggage wasnít given to them.

Also, Iíve never heard of anyone else getting kicked off for this. Smell is highly subjective, this is a slippery slope, and they should sue AAs tush off. I agree with @ExGingi thereís got to be more to the story.

Gary makes a good point, this was from South Florida, so they probably werenít the only Jews on the plane ;)

Evident by this all-American-blue-jean-clean-shaved-leather-jacket dude standing near me last week at TSA JFK without his shoes.. the FO literally hit me in the face like it was an object.
