(NEW YORK) — A budget-minded passenger in China was willing to put a little sweat equity into saving some money on airline baggage fees on a recent flight to Kenya.
According to Guangzhou Daily, when the unidentified man discovered his luggage was over the weight limit and would incur a fee at Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport, he emptied his bags and put on 60 shirts and nine pairs of jeans before trying to board his plane looking “like a sumo wrestler.”
Unfortunately for the flyer — and those behind him in line at the security area — he was forced to strip down when a metal detector found a phone charger and other metal objects in his multiple pockets.
