His words, as quoted by WPLG Local 10 News:
"There's a religious reason for some reason that they're kicking me off the plane. We don't have odour, ok? Nobody here has odour. All of a sudden, as soon as they took us off, they closed the gate and then they said, 'Sorry sir, some people complained you had body odour and we're not letting you back on'."
American Airlines confirmed that the couple and their daughter were ejected from the flight but said another was booked for them. The airline said they were fairly treated and given meal vouchers.
"Mr Adler and his wife were removed from the flight when several passengers complained about their body odour. They have been booked into a hotel for the night and given meal vouchers. They have been rebooked on a flight Thursday."
