Dude tries to avoid paying for luggage by wearing all his clothing at once

A passenger who tried to avoid paying for checked luggage by wearing all his clothes at once has been turned away from two separate flights in Iceland.

The man claims he has been homeless for a week and couldn't afford to pay NZ$170 (£90) for checked luggage.

Ryan Carney Williams attempted to fly home to London from Iceland's Keflavik airport on British Airways while wearing all his clothes. He was not allowed on the flight.

"Being held at Iceland Keflavik airport because I had no baggage put all the clothes on and they still won't let me on. Racial profiling?" he tweeted.

He then said he was arrested and maced. 

Mr Williams makes music and designs clothing under the moniker Ryan Hawaii. 

British Airways says Mr Williams was turned away from the flight for "rude" behaviour, according to Metro. When he refused to leave, security was reportedly called.

The next day, Mr Williams returned to the airport to get an Easyjet flight. He says he went through security before being stopped from getting on the plane.

"The Captain and the ground crew were concerned about reports from the previous day so we provided a refund and he travelled with another airline," Easyjet said.

In 2016, a Welsh man flying to Reykjavik airport, also in Iceland, managed to board his Easyjet flight while wearing all his clothing - but he was questioned by security for 30 minutes. He said he got very hot from all the clothing.

In 2015, Scottish boy band singer James McElvar passed out from heat exhaustion after wearing 12 layers of clothing on a flight from London to Glasgow.
