Jewish family kicked off flight after passengers complain about body odor 

A family is fuming after being kicked off an American Airlines flight in Miami after passengers complained about their body odor.

Yossi Adler along with his wife Jennie and baby were wrapping up their vacation in Miami and heading back home to Detroit Wednesday night, at least that's what they planned. 

"All of a sudden they took us off, closed the gate, and they said sorry sir some people complained you had body odor and we are not letting you back on," Yossi said.

The Adler family briefly boarded their American Airlines flight before they say they were asked to get off because passengers were complaining about their body odor. 

The Adlers say they were told their luggage would be taken off the plane , but that did not happen. Leaving them with only the clothes on their back. 

American Airlines sent us a statement Wednesday night saying quote: "Mr Adler and his wife were removed from the flight when several passengers complained about their body odor. They have been booked into a hotel for the night and given meal vouchers. They have been rebooked on a flight Thursday." 

Yossi, Jennie  and their 19 month old toddler arrived to MIA early Thursday morning in hopes they will be able to take off on their flight. 

Jennie said, "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, PEOPLE TOLD US WE DIDN'T SMELL."

"I'm very frustrated I want them to own up to what really happened, tell me the truth, what was it?" Yossi said.

The family said later they did take off back to Detroit. They said they hope they can find their luggage when they get there.
