We’ve already been told that being too fat will have you kicked off the plane, but now “too smelly” is apparently also a (very) good reason to be sent back into the terminal.
Not much is known about the specifics, but several weeks ago, Canadian airline Jazz had to remove a passenger because of his “brutal” stench.
I’ve been in the unlucky situation of sitting next to a stinker, and it really is a horrible position to be in – especially when you are dealing with the kind of stench that can’t be masked by a spritz of Old Spice.
Thankfully, someone at Jazz had the guts to tell the passenger that he had to get off the plane. In situations like this, I’d rather see them embarrass one passenger, than inconvenience an entire plane.
The airline wouldn’t reveal any specifics, citing privacy concerns, but they do admit that a passenger was removed, mentioning “safety concerns”.
As far as I’m concerned, that is a perfect way to handle it. Seriously, I can understand smelling a little nasty after a few days on the road, but I’ve encountered people I could smell 4 rows up. Do everyone a favor, and take a shower before you fly!
