Working in the travel industry doesn’t make you immune from common travel errors, like say for example, over-packing your carry-on luggage.
That’s the error that made Infinity Holidays’ Bryanna Modolo go viral earlier this week when she attempted to board a Jetstar flight from Brisbane to Uluru (via Sydney) with almost double the carry-on limit.
Not wanting to pay the extra carry-on fee, Bryanna needed a quick solution and the first thing that came to mind was… take out all the clothing and wear it.
So she did.
In a viral video posted to Facebook, Bryanna looks twice her size under layers of hats, jackets and jumpers as she makes her way from check-in to her inflight seat.
She got creative by wrapping a pair of pants around her neck like a scarf and tucking a tripod under her jacket.
“I had to wear every single item I owned onboard so I wasn’t over the limit,” she explained.
“I was still a little bit over and the gate staff looked at me… [but] thankfully I was let through as they were closing the gate.”

The clip uploaded to social media on Tuesday has since received 83,000 views and over 243 comments from fellow flyers who feel her overpacked-pains.
