Man wears 8 pairs of pants, 10 shirts; gets arrested

Ryan Carney Williams made a decision to wear eight pairs of pants and ten shirts in a bid to avoid any luggage fees when boarding at Keflavik Airport on January 10. "Racial profiling?", he tweeted.

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

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.

Shortly after the confrontation police were called and had to pepper spray him and wrestle him to the ground, according to local media reports - something which British Airways dispute. The airline also refused to provide the refund to Hawaii citing terms and conditions.

According to authorities, he managed to put on eight pairs of jeans and ten shirts - not once, but TWICE over two days. He included a video of himself asking why he could not board and a staff member saying: "Do we need to call the police?"

Most people who try one cigarette become daily smokers, study says
However, as Hajek pointed out, the situation might just be temporary, meaning that there's a chance you might "outgrow" daily smoking.

Mr Williams, who flew home on a Norwegian airline, said that both easyJet and British Airways had refunded him after he complained.

The 22-year-old missed his BA flight from Iceland to the United Kingdom, and claims he was also barred from an easyJet plane the next day.

"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. "We do not tolerate threatening or abusive behaviour from any customer, and will always take the appropriate action", said a spokesperson for Easy Jet airlines, reported The Independent.

In the tweets, Ryan, who claims to be an artist/designer, explains that he arrived at the airport in Iceland with no luggage on his booking.

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