It is always a pain to pay excess baggage but you have to endure it if you really want to fly with all those clothes and luggage.

However, to this woman, the excess baggage fee is not in her dictionary. She became more creative by wearing some of her clothes and shoes so she can avoid the $85 fee.

According to Natalie Wynn, she was barred from boarding a Thomas Cook flight because her carry-on luggage weighs 9.4kg instead of 6kg which is the limit.

The 30-year-old woman then started to pull out some of her clothes and wore it to everyone’s surprise.

“I didn’t want to be using the little amount I had just so I could get my bag on the plane. I literally said, ‘I’m not paying it’, and started putting my clothes on,” says Wynn.

All in all, she wore 7 dresses, two pairs of shorts, two pairs of shoes, a skirt and a cardigan.

“I was boiling, absolutely boiling. I still had plenty in my case but I put near enough half of what I’ve put on,” Wynn said while recalling how she dealt with the situation.

Upon seeing Wynn, her friend who also has excess luggage decided to follow Wynn.

Luckily, the stewardess was kind enough and allowed her to take off all those excess clothes upon the boarding of the plane.

Other passengers had a good laugh on Wynn and even offered to place some of her clothes into their luggage so she can avoid the fee.
