But of the many air travel horrors passengers face, there's one that's as frustrating as it is common: the threat of having to pay extra for your overweight bag.
This common travel annoyance is one that British Airways passenger Ryan Carney Williams, a designer who goes by the name Ryan Hawaii, found himself up against on Wednesday.
When he wasn't able to pay the extra bag fee, he decided to go a more creative route.
Unfortunately, it wasn't that easy, and he was denied a boarding pass and turned away at Iceland's Keflavik airport.
Williams tweeted about the whole thing last week and said he was "arrested and maced" after trying to board the plane wearing the massive layers of clothing.
For his part, Williams says that he wasn't trying to avoid the fee, but rather didn't have enough money to pay for the extra luggage.
In any case, wearing all your clothes onto a flight may not be the best way to dodge those exceedingly high baggage fees the next time you travel. »
