Popping your luggage on the scales at the airport is the quickest way to a panic attack. The fees can be massive depending on which airline you’re traveling with and how far over you’ve gone.
If your luggage goes over the limit, you shouldn’t empty your suitcase in the dumpster behind the terminal Starbucks just yet. A woman in the Philippines may have found a solution. She put on all of her extra clothes. All of them.
That meant wearing three pairs of pants, five shirts, a couple more jackets, and button-downs.
when the airline staff at the check in counter said: “EXCESS NA PO KAYO, 7kg lang po allowed na hand carry.”me: NO PROBLEM! 😏*from 9kg to 6.5kg baggage 😅#ExcessBaggageChallengeAccepted
In her recent Facebook post, Gel Rodriguez explained how the check-in staff had informed her that hand carries only allowed for a maximum of 7 kg, while her luggage weighed nearly 9 kg.
Thanks to her small trick, her luggage weight got reduced to 6.5 kg. With her excess baggage successfully shaved off, she proudly showed off her new #ootd (outfit of the day) with the hashtag #ExcessBaggageChallenge Accepted.
