British Airways Turns Away Passenger Away Wearing 10 Layers of Clothing

  • Ryan Carney Williams 22 who makes music and designs clothes under the moniker Ryan Hawaii was blocked from flying home from Iceland after putting on all of the spare clothes that exceeded BA's baggage limit before boarding the flight

A man was barred from boarding two flights home to London after wearing eight pairs of pants and 10 shirts.

The following day, Williams said he was banned from boarding an easyJet flight after the airline heard about his behaviour.

But after the confrontation led to Mr Williams' arrest, alleged macing by Icelandic police and being denied flights two days in a row, the Brit blamed racial profiling for his arrest.

He was denied boarding for putting on too many clothes.

.

Hawaii claimed on Twitter that he was "arrested and maced" by authorities following the incident. When he refused to leave, security was reportedly called.

He tweeted: "Being held at Iceland Keflavik airport because I had no baggage put all the clothes on and they still won't let me on...."

An airline staffer responds: "Do we need to call the police?" "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".


Continuing, Ryan said: "I asked politely if I could wear all the clothes in my case and still board".

Williams was eventually able to make it home on a Norwegian Airlines flight but is focused on directing attention on British Airways and EasyJet, threatening a lawsuit against the latter.

According to him, EasyJet and British Airways both refunded him after he complained to them.

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.

Mr Williams claims he was stuck at the Iceland airport with no money and without his belongings as his luggage successfully flown to England without him.

A spokesperson for British Airways told Sun Online: "We give our customers a wide range of fares to choose from to meet their needs. We explained our policy to our customer and arranged an alternative flight".
