Traveler ejected for smell loses legal suit:

TBody freshener


A court in Germany rejected a man’s compensation claim against an airline after a cabin crew ordered him off a plane because other passengers were offended by his smell, authorities said Thursday.

An appeals court in the western city of Duesseldorf upheld an earlier ruling that British Airways (BA) had acted within its rights by removing the man from the aircraft after a female passenger sitting next to him complained about his smell.

“The stewardess took him to one side and asked him if he could put on a fresh shirt, but they were all in the hold,” a court spokesman said. “So then he was asked to leave the plane — about two minutes before take off.”

BA said other passengers were upset by the man’s smell.

My comment: The poor guy needed a spray of “Skunk Off” and that would have solved the problem.
