Man Tries to Avoid Baggage Fee by Wearing 70 Items of Clothing to Airport
Flying is expensive enough, but when airlines tack on silly fees, the cost gets downright ridiculous. So, you can hardly blame the unidentified man at a Chinese airport who recently tried to avoid a baggage fee by wearing all his clothes at once. Didn’t we see something similar on an episode of ‘Friends’?
According to reports, the man showed up at Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport in China looking like a “sumo wrestler.” He was wearing more than 60 shirts and nine pairs of jeans simultaneously.
He might have gotten away with it too. But, he set off a metal detector while waiting to board a flight to Kenya and had to undergo a full body search, which required him to take off the numerous articles of clothing. Officials then discovered batteries, thumb drives and devices chargers stuffed in his many pockets.
There’s no word on whether the man was allowed to board the flight. He might still be stuck in TSA screening.
