Passenger Tossed From BA Flight For Wearing All His Clothes

Was Trying To Avoid Paying Baggage Fees

A passenger attempting to board a British Airways flight from Keflavik International Airport to England on Wednesday says he was denied boarding because he was wearing too many clothes.

The traveler was Ryan Williams, who also goes by the name Ryan Hawaii, according to a report from The Chicago Tribune. He attempted to board the plane wearing multiple layers of clothing, including two items draped over his shoulders. Williams said on Twitter that he could not afford the $125 baggage fee charged by the airline.

Williams posted a video on Twitter in which he said that BA told him that he could board wearing multiple layers of clothing when he asked, but then he was denied boarding when he arrived at the gate.

In a later video, Williams asks a gate agent why he cannot board dressed as he was, and was told that he was not allowed to capture video and an agent threatens to call the police.

Williams was reportedly arrested. A British Airways spokesman said that the gate agents attempted to explain their baggage policy to him, and offered him alternative flights. Instead, Williams tried to return to London on easyJet, but he was removed from his flight by the captain, who cited the BA incident the day before.

He eventually did make it home ... on an airline that was not reported. No word on how he was dressed for that flight.
