Scottish man wears 15 layers of clothes rather than pay fees

Postby Greg on Wed Jul 10, 2019 9:34 am

A Scottish man decided to skirt an airline's excess baggage fee by wearing the extra clothing that tipped his suitcases over the limit.

John Irvine of Glasgow was boarding an EasyJet flight from Nice with his family Friday night when he was told his check-in baggage was too heavy. Rather than pay, he opened his bag and began putting on layers—as his amused son, Josh, filmed the incident on Snapchat.

Eventually, the Irvines made their way to security, but John's unusual appearance caught the attention of Nice Airport guards. "They told him to take off some tops, and he kept taking them off because they were wondering what he was hiding," said Josh. When the guards were satisfied John wasn't a threat, he made his way to the gate with armfuls of shirts, which he brought onto the plane.
