A man claims British Airways refused to let him board a flight after he tried getting on wearing several layers of clothing to avoid paying a baggage fee.
"...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? Or..." the Twitter user who uses the name "Ryan Hawaii" wrote in part.
The Daily Mail reports that he was wearing eight pairs of pants and ten shirts.
Two days later, Hawaii tweeted he tried to board another flight and was refused once more.
However, Hawaii claims that he wasn't evading the baggage fees but he couldn't afford paying the fee because he was left " homeless in Iceland for over a week."
To everyone reporting on my airport experience in Iceland.— Ryan Hawaii (@RYAN_HAWAII) January 16, 2018
PLEASE STOP SAYING I was EVADING excess baggage fees....I couldn't AFFORD the fee (£90) as a result of being left homeless in Iceland for over a week.
Paints a VERY different picture.
Thankful that anyone cares tho.
