Man Sews All His Clothes Into Giant Coat to Avoid New Ryanair Hand Baggage Fee

Where there’s a will, there’s a way, just ask a guy named Lee Cimino from the UK. He frequently flies with low-cost operator Ryanair, so he was upset when he heard of its new policy regarding hand baggage.

Until just recently, you could bring a roller bag on board free of charge, if it didn’t exceed a certain size and weight. However, now, if you wish to do that, you will have to pay between £6 and £8 each way. The decision didn’t sit well with other passengers and it certainly upset Cimino.

In a Facebook post that has since gone viral, he explains that he booked his flight to Belfast 2 days after Ryanair changed its policy but he didn’t want to pay to bring some essentials on board. So he came up with a plan: what if he could find some way to bring all the stuff he needed for his trip and not have it in a carry-on case?

He found an old, large coat and he worked with a tailor to create various pockets inside. For those, the tailor used other clothing items, like t-shirts and underpants, to which zippers were attached. All these compartments, he used to pack all the stuff he needed for his trip, including toiletries, a few changes of clothes and even shoes.

It goes without saying, he looked ridiculous with the coat on, bulging as it was. He looked so hilarious that even he doubted the trick would work, admitting to being very nervous before boarding.

The video, which is also available at the bottom of the page, doesn’t show the exact moment he passed the security screening or the boarding lane, but it does show him happily getting on the plane. Sadly, this means we don’t get to see the look on airport and Ryanair staff when they saw this man wearing all his stuff, but they were probably amused. Because who wouldn't be?
