New Delhi:

Will NBC give this woman a cast in our favourite sitcom, Friends already? Because her trick to avoid extra baggage charge will even have Joey Tribbiani himself impressed. Natalie Wynn, 30, was travelling to Fuerteventura in the Canary Islands from Manchester when she was stopped by a security officer, who weighed her 9.4kg case and told her it was too heavy to take on board, as the limit was 6kg per passenger.

Not ready to pay the extra tough for her baggage she decided to channel her inner Joey Tribbiani by donning the extra seven dresses, two pairs of shows, two pairs of shorts, a skirt and a cardigan.

She told The Sun, “I was boiling, absolutely boiling. I still had plenty in my case, but I put near enough half of what I’ve put on,” Ms Wynn, from Oldham in Greater Manchester, said.

“I put on four dresses, two pairs of shorts, I tied a dress around my neck, put a skirt on, I shoved two dresses down the dresses I had on and two pairs of shoes as well and a cardigan.

“It definitely worked. Normally, I check the weight of the baggage, but I did the online check-in for me and my friend, but we got to the counter and they just stopped me.

“It was nearly 4kg over, but they wanted to charge us £65 each just to get it on the plane.

“Because I had booked an all-inclusive holiday so was getting all my food and drink, I didn’t plan on bringing much money with me.”

Even Thomas Cook praised the witty mum and her ingenious idea from the episode of Friends. A spokeswoman for Thomas Cook Airlines said: "Natalie's ingenuity here is noted!
