There are many ways to avoid excess baggage fee, carrying minimum clothing is one of them.

Ryan Carney Williams aka Ryan Hawaii probably wasn't aware of this.

Hawaii who was travelling from Iceland to London was allegedly turned away from a British Airways flight at Keflavik airport as he wearing not one not two but 10 shirts and eight pairs of pants, The Telegraph reported.

All this to skip the £90 baggage fee. Yep. #CheapThrills

He later took to Twitter asking if he was not allowed to board because of “racial profiling”. Hawaii posted a video on his account."They still won't let me on," he said. "Can you explain why I can't get on the flight," he further added.

"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.....," he wrote on his Twitter page.

However, British Airways refuted the claims and said the decision to deny boarding for Hawaii "was absolutely not based on race. We do not tolerate threatening or abusive behaviour from any customer, and will always take the appropriate action," The Telegraph reported, citing a spokesperson from the airline.

Things didn't end there. The following day, Hawaii took to Twitter to say that he was turned away again this time by EasyJet.

"The captain for your easyJet flight was made aware of what happened the previous day. Because of this, the captain took the decision to offload you from the flight," the DM read.
