A man with foul body odour was removed from an Air Jazz flight from Charlottetown, P.E.I., to Montreal, Que., earlier this month, Charlottetown’s The Guardian newspaper is reporting.
Penny Walsh of Charlottetown was on the flight. She told the newspaper she had a cold and couldn’t smell the man, but other passengers weren’t happy about the odour.
“The guy next to me said, ‘It’s brutal,’” Walsh said.
Walsh said she observed as the flight crew escorted the man from the plane and said she thought it was for the best.
“It’s a very uncomfortable situation. I honestly think in this situation they handled it appropriately,” she said.
Air Canada did not immediately return QMI Agency’s request for comment.
