A British passenger arrested for beating the excess luggage fee by wearing all his clothes including eight pairs of trousers and 10 shirts. Ryan Carney Williams was travelling from Iceland to London, was reportedly denied a boarding pass by British Airways at Keflavik airport on Wednesday, after that he put on all his clothes that he couldn’t fit in his checked-in baggage. Ryan known by the name of Ryan Hawaii – shared his experience on Twitter on Wednesday, asking if he was not allowed to board because of “racial profiling”.
“@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?,” he tweeted.
British Airways contested Ryan’s version of the events, saying it had denied him a boarding pass for his “rude” behaviour. The airline said that when he refused to leave, the desk called a security guard. In a later tweet, Ryan alleged that he was sprayed with mace, made to lie down on the ground and arrested by the police. After he gave his statement to the police, he was allowed to return to the airport to catch another flight he had booked with Easy Jet airlines. But Ryan claims he was refused boarding by the second airline as well.
