It all started when the Scottish band Rewind tried to board an EasyJet flight from Stansted to Glasgow. While the rest of the band members breezed through, 19-year-old James was told he had too much luggage.
At this point he had three options: stump up £45, chuck his clothes, OR put them all on.
An EasyJet spokesperson said: ‘In this instance the passenger had two items of cabin baggage which he could not combine into the allocated bag allowance and as such he was asked to either combine his baggage into one bag or pay £45 to check the bag into the hold.
Obviously, putting them all on seemed like the best option, and that’s exactly what he did. All six t-shirts, four jumpers, three pairs of jeans, two pairs of jogging bottoms, two jackets and two hats of them.
Oh, how quickly a lol can turn into a total nightmare.
James thought he was getting one over on EasyJet. Unfortunately all he got was heat exhaustion.
Talking to MailOnline, James explained: ‘It was impossible to walk, I could barely get on the plane.’
James may be silly, but he’s not stupid, and as soon as he got on the plane, he tried to remove some of his excess layers. Problem is, he was told he wasn’t allowed to do this until the plane was in the air.
At this point, things started to go seriously down hill…..
Thankfully there was a paramedic on board, who put James in the recovery position and looked after him for the remainder of the flight.
Poor James commented: ‘It was a nightmare. I passed out twice and was taken off the plane at Glasgow Airport to a waiting ambulance.’
