A WOMAN who was told her carry-on luggage was three kilos too heavy for the aircraft cabin avoided a £65 excess baggage charge by wearing the extra weight.

Fellow passengers on the Thomas Cook flight from Manchester to Fuerteventura in Spain’s Canary Islands were astonished to see Natalie Wynn, aged 30, put on seven dresses, two pairs of shoes, two pairs of shorts, a skirt and a cardigan.

Thomas Cook rules state that adults are allowed to take one piece of hand baggage weighing up to 6kg onto the flight free of charge.


The mum-of-five did admit she was ‘boiling’ as she boarded the flight but crew allowed her to remove the extra layers once onboard.

A Thomas Cook Airlines spokesperson said: “Natalie’s ingenuity is noted! The good news for Natalie and the rest of our customers, is that later this month we are increasing our hand baggage allowance to 8kg.

“This will hopefully help her travel a little less like Joey from Friends next time.”
