Stories of passengers getting kicked off a plane for unruly behavior is nothing new. But being kicked off for smelling so rancid is still a unique story.
On February 6th,Â a smelly passenger flying on a Air Canada Jazz flight from Charlottetown to Montreal was asked to leave the flight.
The plane was waiting for take off when passengers started complaining about the smell. The stinky passenger was moved, but it didn’t help the problem. The airline asked the man to leave the plane and he did. It ended up only delaying the flight about 15 minutes, but worth it to the passengers left on board.
“Because of privacy reasons, I really can’t provide specific information on the passenger who was involved or the reason for the deplanement. But I can confirm that there was one passenger deplaned from our flight,” Manon Stuart, a spokesperson for Air Canada Jazz, told CBC News Wednesday. The airline continued, “the safety and comfort of our passengers are certainly our top priorities, so any situation that is perceived as a threat to either the safety or the comfort of our passengers is taken seriously.”
The smelly passenger was allowed to fly another flight the next morning.
