A man travelling from Iceland to London was turned away from a British Airways flight after he wore eight pairs of pants and 10 shirts to avoid paying for excess luggage.
Ryan Carney Williams who goes by Ryan Hawaii was reportedly stopped from boarding his flight back to the UK after he put on all the clothes that wouldn't fit in his checked luggage.
Taking to his social media page to document the debacle, he tweeted “@British_Airways hi 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?”
Sadly, the ordeal did not end there after he was turned away from a second flight with EasyJet the following day.
He tweeted, "And AGAIN! Refused from 2 flights in 2 days for no valid reason."
EasyJet explained that the Captain and ground crew were concerned about reports from the previous day and that Ryan was provided with a full refund.
British Airways deny that the incident had anything to do with race.
A spokeswoman said, “The decision to deny boarding was absolutely not based on race. We do not tolerate threatening or abusive behaviour from any customer, and will always take the appropriate action.”
