'smelly' passenger removed from plane : Karen writes

A Transavia airways passenger was removed from a plane due to complaints about his 'malodor'.
The plane diverted to remove him.
The story made international headlines.

Here is is in the UK Daily Mail : Smelly passenger removed from flight

It's not known if his malodor was metabolic caused, or a  surface issue.
If it was metabolic, sadly the opportunity to raise awareness of METABOLIC MALODOR is not furthered in this article, although trimethylaminuria was mentioned in the comments, which some might see.

Excerpt from article

An airplane full of tourists was forced to divert after a passenger's foul-smelling body odour reportedly caused those around him to vomit and faint.
The Transavia Boeing 737 took off from Schiphol Airport in the Netherlands for Gran Canaria, but instead it touched down in Faro, Portugal.
At one point, flight crew reportedly tried to quarantine the 'unwashed' man in a toilet before the pilots decided to divert the flight.  
MEBO's Karen James feels strongly about the treatment in such cases.
Here is a message Karen sent in her recent email newsletter.

Another horrific discriminatory incident on an aeroplane. Please take the time to contact some airlines. I admit it is quite difficult to get email addresses for most of them, but please try. I have included a few contacts below after a very long time searching.

I also suggest that we purchase bracelets from IDA. If we can't control our odours, then we must protect ourselves from discrimination when travelling on the grounds of invisible disability. https://invisibledisabilities.org/

please use my sample e-mail message at the end of this message if you wish, and you can distribute this info on secret facebook groups etc.

SAMPLE MESSAGE

Hello,

I would like to request that air stewards and Airways staff are trained in being aware of invisible disabilities including incurable metabolic malodour spectrum disorders such as Trimethylaminuria ( https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/trimethylaminuria/), which results in the sufferer emitting a pungent odour which is NOT connected to personal hygiene. In light of the discriminatory, ignorant and insensitive actions of United Airlines,
https://www.msn.com/en-gb/news/world/nigerian-woman-kicked-off-united-flight-after-white-man-complained-she-was-%E2%80%98pungent%E2%80%99-suit-says/ar-AAxbbuz?li=BBoPWjQ
and Transavia Airlines,
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/travel/travel_news/article-5790829/The-unbearable-stench-unwashed-man-forces-Transavia-airliner-divert.html
our community is very worried that travelling with this condition could result in trauma and humiliation. Could you please ensure that sensitive treatment of metabolic body odour sufferers is included in your customer service inclusion training and policy.
