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 ;)

You can find dirty people that dont shower in all religions and sectors
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.

crazy stuff! how many times did i actually sit next someone with Body odor and just lived with it :-\
http://www.ivelt.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=946576#p946576
A fat guy saw who his neighbor is, as he was sitting down he said to himself "Oh the shower was broken i didn't take one for 3 days already", it didn't take long he got a new neighbor.
I guess doesn't always workout right

I know this family personally. They are the last people I would ever expect to have body odor. They are very normal people. (Yes, SHOCKING, Detroit has normal people!)
Did Gary contact u to verify u know them?

does anyone think that aa is going to say that only one passenger complained or only one crew member said that the family had BO?

from what i've seen in other cases when ever a crew member has an issue with a passenger it makes no difference if the complaint is correct the captain and all the other crew will back the single crew member making the fuss
