If youve ever got to the check-in desk and found your luggage was over the weight limit, youll sympathise with this passenger.

John Irvine, from Scotland, was told his bag was eight kilograms too heavy and that he wasnt allowed to check it in without paying a fee.

Unwilling to waste his cash on EasyJet extra charges, he had a simple solution.

He just put on eight kilograms worth of clothes when the weather was around 30C outside. Easy.

The Irvine family had been travelling back from Nice in France to Edinburgh airport when son Josh filmed his dad piling on the shirts and jumpers, and posted it on Twitter saying his dad was sweating.

Josh, 17, told Metro.co.uk: We were coming home back to Bearsden, Glasgow from France on Saturday night and we never thought wed be over the weight limit by eight kilos.

Grabs from Jam Press (baggage fee dodge) Hilarious moment Scots dad wears 15 jumpers on the way home from holiday to dodge airport baggage fee. A quick thinking Scottish dad came up with this genius solution to the problem of his family luggage being eight kilograms over the airport baggage threshold. Dad John, 46, from Bearsden, Glasgow and family were on their way back home from France on Saturday night. When they checked in at the airport staff pointed out that one of the bags was over weight and asked if they would pay the extra, when John offered a cheaper solution - to wear the extra weight on his person. His son Josh filmed the clip and posted it on twitter with the caption ?Suitcase was over the weight limit in the airport so ma Da whipped oot aboot 15 shirts n wacked every one a them on to make the weight cunt wis sweatin? Josh told Jam Press - ?we never thought we?d be over the weight limit by 8 kilos? ?The lassie at the counter asked us if we wanted to pay extra but my dad just looked up at her and said ?hen , watch this? and zipped open the suitcase and quickly flung on about 15 jumpers to help cut down the weight? ?The staff were in stitches with laughter but trying to get through the security was a struggle because they thought he was trying to smuggle something under all his clothes? ?Thankfully we got through eventually? The hilarious video has since been viewed over 475k times with with comments pointing out the Joey from friends connections and others posting they might just copy the idea themselves. ENDS?
