Airplane Londoner barred from boarding flights after wearing all his clothes to aviod bag fee

Had to shorten the headline a bit to make it fit in the subject line.

A Londoner claims he was banned from boarding two flights for wearing too many clothes as he tried to board a British Airways plane.

In a bizarre bid to avoid paying excess fees, Mr Hawaii donned his extra clothing in an attempt to board the flight. He was still refused entry and the dispute escalated into a row after he confronted security staff about the incident.
I'm going to guess the actual reason he was denied boarding was because he was being disruptive, not because he was "wearing too many clothes". It's not entirely clear from the article, but I wonder when he was told he needed to pay a fee for his bag he put on all his clothes right there in the terminal and probably made a scene about it?
