Man arrested at Iceland airport for wearing 'too many clothes'

Ryan Carney Williams, known on Twitter as Ryan Hawaii, drew eyes from every corner of the internet after sharing a harrowing airline experience during which he claims he was held at Iceland Keflavik airport because he'd put on every article of clothing he couldn't fit in his checked bag.

A man traveling from Iceland to England was arrested at the Iceland Keflavík International Airport for attempting to avoid an excess luggage fee by wearing eight pairs of trousers and ten shirts.

Williams described his ordeal in a series of posts and videos on Twitter, including a screenshot of a direct message exchange with easyjet in which he suggests he might sue the airline and a video post to British Airways in which he suggests he was subject to racial profiling. Staff were forced to call security.

Once Hawaii gave his report to the police at the station, he was sent back to the airport for a flight he had booked with EasyJet for the next day. "Refused from 2 flights in 2 days for no valid reason".

After booking a flight for the next day, "Hawaii" says he got through check-in and security, but once he arrived at the flight gate, he was told he wasn't allowed to board because of the incident the day before. That airline said in a statement that "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".

A spokesman for British Airways told the Daily Mirror that no pepper spray was used, contrary to Williams' claim.

Williams eventually arrived back home after getting a Norwegian airline flight and was allegedly refunded the price of his flights from BA and easyJet.

"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 explained our policy to our customer, and arranged an alternative flight to London". "WHOLE other story", Williams wrote.

A BRITISH Airways passenger claims he was kicked off a flight to England and arrested for wearing too many CLOTHES.
