WATCH: Man puts on 15 layers of clothes to avoid paying the excess carry-on luggage fee

Must See 11/07/2019

A young man has captured the hilarious moment his dad put on 15 shirts to avoid an excess luggage fee.

Josh Irvine, from Glasgow in Scotland, posted the video to Twitter after the airline his family were flying with told his father his suitcase was overweight.

"Suitcase was over the weight limit in the airport so ma Da [sic] whipped out about 15 shirts and wacked [sic] every one of them on to make the weight," Irvine said in a Tweet.

His father is then seen putting on multiple t-shirts and jumpers before the family proceed past the check-in area, his father now visibly sweating, with the caption "absolutely bloody roasting".

Irvine's dad is not the only airline passenger to wear all of their clothes at once to avoid a fee.

In April, Natalie Wynn, 30, avoided a $NZ126 fine after boarding a Thomas Cook flight from the UK to the Canary Islands wearing nearly 4kg of clothing.

"I put on four dresses, two pairs of shorts, I tied a dress around my neck, put a skirt on, I shoved two dresses down the dresses I had on, and two pairs of shoes as well, and a cardigan," she said.

Wynn said she was allowed to take all of her excess clothing off once she got on the plane, and she managed to repack it all.

However, not all passengers have found similar success, with one man turned away from two separate flights in Iceland after using the same tactic.

While in 2015, Scottish boy band singer James McElvar passed out from heat exhaustion after wearing 12 layers of clothing on a flight from London to Glasgow.
