Man wears nine pairs of jeans on plane to avoid baggage fees

A MAN  going from China to Nairobi tried to avoid extra baggage fees on his flight by wearing more than 60 items of clothing.

The unusually shaped man was noticed by airport security at China's Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport when he struggled to pass through the security gate and then set the alarm off.

Airport staff asked him to strip down for a body check, which turned out to be a major undertaking, reports the local Guangzhou Daily.

As he was made to remove layer after layer, airport security were surprised to find a slim Kenyan man under the garments- 61 in all, including nine pairs of jeans.

Airport security staff reportedly found personal items including batteries, ties, USB sticks, toys and other items in his pockets.

The passenger explained that his luggage was already overweight, and since he didn't want to pay the excess baggage charge, he put on all the rest of his clothes and pants to wear on the plane.
