A man travelling from Iceland to London was turned away from two flights after he wore eight pairs of trousers and 10 shirts to avoid paying for excess luggage.

Ryan Carney Williams, who goes by Ryan Hawaii, was reportedly denied a boarding pass at the British Airways desk for his flight home after he put on all his clothes that wouldn't fit properly in his checked luggage. He was refused entry a second time, prompting the dispute to escalate when he confronted security staff. In an apparent attempt to avoid an excess baggage charge, Williams wore all his clothes.

Ryan Carney Williams' horrific tale of being stranded at an airport in Iceland for wearing several items of clothing that wouldn't fit in his checked baggage has gone viral, garnering global attention.

Finally, police were called to interfere and according to Hawaii they were violent towards him, using pepper spray and holding him to the ground.

Two security guards in high-vis jackets can be seen approaching him as he asks: "Why can't I get on this flight?"

Hawaii posted a video to his Twitter profile slamming the airline for 'racial profiling'.

After he gave his statement to police he returned to the airport to get an EasyJet flight he had booked for the next day.

Eventually he returned to the United Kingdom on a Norwegian airline flight. "The BA staff told me "Yes" after a bit of a back and forth and me refusing to leave the desk because I weren't given a valid reason to leave".

A BRITISH Airways passenger claims he was kicked off a flight to England and arrested for wearing too many CLOTHES. EasyJet has also refunded him.

"We explained our policy to our customer, and offered him an alternative flight to London".

"We do understand that our customers' plans can change so they can choose to pay a fee at the airport if they need an extra bag", the spokesman added.

"The captain and the ground crew were concerned about reports from the previous day so we provided a refund and he traveled with another airline", an EasyJet spokesman told the Mirror.
