Williams claimed he took such a drastic measure as he was unable to afford the baggage fees and that he had been told by British Airways staff that he would be allowed board the flight even after doing so.
But after the confrontation led to Mr Williams' arrest, alleged macing by Icelandic police and being denied flights two days in a row, the Brit blamed racial profiling for his arrest. 'If I was a young white male or young white female I would have been treated slightly differently, ' Mr Williams, from Catford, south London, told MailOnline.
"I moved. Continued to film and explain that I was well within my rights".
One British Airways passenger tried to skirt all the fees in a unique way: he chose to wear all his clothes on board rather than putting them in a bag, The Washington Post reports. Following a two hour delay at the gate, Williams said he was again barred from boarding after the pilot heard about his behaviour the previous day. We do not tolerate threatening or abusive behaviour from any customer, and will always take the appropriate action'. Security was then called to get him to leave.
"@British_Airways hi being held at Iceland Keflavik airport because I had no baggage put all the clothes on and they still won't let me on".
The ordeal did not end there, with Williams turned away from a fight with EasyJet the following day.
He explained the full story on Twitter earlier today: "Arrived to airport in Iceland with no luggage on my booking".
Although he was not aboard the flight, Williams said his belongings were flown to England.
He was reportedly stopped from boarding his flight back to the United Kingdom after he put on all the clothes that wouldn't fit in his checked luggage.
When he rebooked a flight with easyjet the next day, he was also refused, and tweeted: "And again!"
