He was however arrested – for wearing an excessive amount of clothing.
According to Metro UK, Ryan Carney Williams was allegedly denied a boarding pass at the BA desk for his flight from Iceland to England after he put on all the clothes that wouldn’t fit in his luggage.
He tweeted his anger and posted a video slamming the airline for ‘racial profiling’.
He said: ‘@British_Airways 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…..’
Footage shows him asking employees why he wasn’t allowed to board. Airline staff can be heard saying ‘do we need to call the police?’ to which he replies ‘yes, if needs be. I haven’t done anything wrong.’
According to British Airways, Williams was acting rude so they turned him away, but when he refused to leave the desk they called a security guard.
In a later tweet, Williams said he was arrested, sprayed with mace and held on the ground when he refused to lave.
After giving a statement to police, he returned to the airport the next day to get an EasyJet flight, but once he’d gone through security, he claims he was stopped from getting on the plane again.
He tweeted: ‘And AGAIN! Refused from 2 flights in 2 days for no valid reason.’
He claims he was stuck at Iceland airport with no money and his luggage already on the plane to England without him. Williams eventually arrived back home after getting a Norwegian airline flight and was allegedly refunded the price of his flights from BA and easyJet.
A spokesperson for British Airways told Metro.co.uk: ‘We give our customers a wide range of fares to choose from to meet their needs.
‘Our hand baggage only fares from Iceland are as low as £47 each way, and are designed for customers who are travelling without any hold baggage.
‘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. â€‹
‘We explained our policy to our customer, and offered him an alternative flight to London.’
A spokesperson for easyJet told Metro.co.uk: ‘The Captain and the ground crew were concerned about reports from the previous day so we provided a refund and he travelled with another airline.’ THINK YOUR FRIEND WOULD BE INTRESTED?
