A court rejected a man's compensation claim against an airline after cabin crew ordered him off a plane because other passengers were offended by his smell, authorities said last week.
An appeals court upheld an earlier ruling that the airline 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 spokesperson said.
"So then he was asked to leave the plane - about two minutes before take off."
A spokesperson for the airline said other passengers were upset by the smell.
The corporate lawyer and his wife missed their connection when the incident forced them to take the next plane.
