There was a husband and wife that was travelling with their small child and apparently smelled so bad that American Airlines kicked them off of the plane before the plane left Miami to Michigan. Some people on the plane say it was so bad that even the pilots could smell it.

But, the husband, who is Jewish, is now claiming anti-Semitism may have been the real reason they got the boot.

"Even if it wasn’t, they were anti-Semitic afterward," he told the Washington Post on Friday.

In response, American Airlines told the publication its employees were unaware of the family's religion.

According to the newspaper, at least two passengers who claim to have been on the plane sided with the airline -- telling reporters the stench was so strong they couldn't have made it through the two-and-a-half hour flight", according to WIVB.

"...Our Miami airport team members were concerned about the comfort of our other passengers due to the odor," American Airlines wrote in a statement to the Detroit News.
