British man kicked off flight for wearing all his clothes to avoid baggage fee

• https://www.upi.com, By Ray Downs

"I couldn't afford the fee as a result of being left homeless in Iceland for over a week," he wrote on Twitter.

In a video he posted online, Williams said that airline employees told him he'd be able to get on the flight if he put on all his clothes, which he did.

"They're really having me dress like this to go on, and they won't even let me go on," Williams said in the video.

But it turned out, bundling up didn't get him on the flight, either.

@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? Or..... pic.twitter.com/NKgpe1cPFP

The next day, Williams tried to board a flight on easyJet, which normally charges fees for carry-on and checked bags -- and they didn't make an exception for Williams, even when he again tried to wear all of his clothes.
