Adriana Ocampo was travelling with airline Jetstar from Melbourne to her home in Adelaide, Australia with her friend. She realised that her carry-on baggage exceeded the maximum weight limit of 7 kilos. In order to avoid paying the excess baggage fee, she put on all her extra clothes. Her friend did the same too.
A video of this 19 year old woman wearing 5.5 kg of clothes including jackets, jumpers and trousers went viral. She had worn about 6 layers of extra clothes.
In spite of doing this, she had to pay a fine of $65 as her baggage was still 1 kg more than the limit. Moreover, she had to wear all that extra clothing on the plane as well.
A similar incident took place in 2019 when a passenger on a Filipino airline wore about 2.5 kg of clothing to bring her bag’s weight down to 6.5 kg. She had posted a hilarious photo of this on Facebook.
