Watch as frustrated passenger tries to beat easyJet baggage rules at airport – and leaves people in stitches | The Sun

A FRUSTRATED passenger has gone viral after he hilariously tried to beat easyJet's carry-on baggage rules.

The man went into great trouble to avoid having to pay for checked-in baggage and was determined to show that his bag was the right size for the cabin.

When a meticulous airline worker insisted he proved that his bag was within the regulation size by placing it in the bag size checker, it proved to be a tighter squeeze than he first expected.

But he was still intent on making the bag fit, so much so that he kicked and shoved the bag to make sure he was permitted to take it on board.

The incident was caught on video and shared to Tiktok, where it has been seen over 24million times.

Other passengers were heard cracking up in the background as the exasperated man continued to stamp and shove at his suitcase, only for the easyJet staff member to keep pointing out areas where his bag stuck out of the size checker.

Eventually, the man succeeded in convincing the staff member that his bag was the right size, only for it to then be lodged inside the bag checker.

The man then became even more frustrated as he realised he has to try and get his suitcase back out again.

The video tickled plenty of people online, with some suspecting that he would be there trying to free his belongings for quite some time.

One wrote: "He’s going to miss his flight trying to get that out."

Others suspected the staff member was simply having a laugh at the passenger's expense.

One said: "That guy was okay with the bag from the beginning. He just wanted to see him trying to pull it out after."

The man is not the only passenger to go viral for forcing an item into the luggage size checker recently.

Last month a skateboarder was forced to snap his skateboard in half to avoid paying £75 in excess hand-luggage fees.

Shaun Hover was checking in for his flight, when he was told he would have to pay $89 (£75) for his board as it didn't technically fit the hand luggage measurements.

Instead, Shaun stamped on his skateboard, breaking it in half, meaning he would then be able to take it on board the flight without having to fork out.
